How do you solve the following equations?

1.) 7x – 3 = 2x – 33

2.) 3(x – 2) = 2(2x – 1)

1.) 7x – 3 = 2x – 33

2.) 3(x – 2) = 2(2x – 1)

7x - 3 = 2x - 33

5x - 3 = - 33 {subtracted 2x from both sides}

5x = -30 {added 3 to both sides}

x = -6 {divided both sides by 5}

3(x - 2) = 2(2x - 1)

3x - 6 = 4x - 2 {used distributive property}

3x - 4 = 4x {added 2 to both sides}

x = - 4 {subtracted 3x from both sides}
