How would you make this into an equation and solve it? A number x is five more than two times x – 3. Translate the words into an equation:
A number x......x is.......= five more than two times x  3......2(x  3) + 5 x = 2(x  3) + 5 {translated to an equation} x = 2x  6 + 5 {used distributive property} x = 2x  1 {combined like terms} x = 1 {subtracted 2x from both sides} x = 1 {divided both sides by 1}  Algebra House
