### How do you work out the problem -4 plus 7 equals 5x-2?

First of all, you have to know what you're looking for ... a number that you can put in place of 'x' and make the whole statement true. There's only one number that will work. -4 + 7 = 5x - 2 Combine the numbers on the left side: 3 = 5x - 2 Add 2 to each side of the equation: 5 = 5x Divide each side by 5: 1 = x
