- 2x - 39 = x

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The main idea behind these types of problems is to get all the x's on one side of the equation and all the numbers on the other side.

-2x - 39 = x First add 2x to both sides of the equation.

-2x - 39 + 2x = x + 2x Cancel out 2x on left hand side of equation and simplify right side of equation.

-39 = 3x Divide both sides by 3 to get your answer.

-13=x
