x + 9 = 17. Solve for x.
When solving equations for a variable like x, always think of the equation as balancing the two sides between the equal side. When solved the left side of the equation should equal the right side. In this case, you will want to isolate the x variable to solve. You can do this by moving the '9' to the right side of the equation. Because the 9 has an addition sign in front, you must do the opposite and subtract to move it to the right side. When you subtract 9 from the left and subtract 9 from the right you now have the equation x = 8 and have solved for x!
