I have an algebra question that is eluding me at the moment. 5x - 20 divided by 2 equals 15. How do you solve for x?

5x - 20

--------- = 15

2

5x - 20 = 30 {multiplied each side by 2}

5x = 50 {added 20 to each side}

--------- = 15

2

5x - 20 = 30 {multiplied each side by 2}

5x = 50 {added 20 to each side}

**x = 10**{divided each side by 5}*- Algebra House*
