Simplifying

2x + 3y = 12

Solving

2x + 3y = 12

Solving for variable ‘x’.

Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right.

Add ‘-3y’ to each side of the equation.

2x + 3y + -3y = 12 + -3y

Combine like terms: 3y + -3y = 0

2x + 0 = 12 + -3y

2x = 12 + -3y

Divide each side by ‘2’.

x = 6 + -1.5y

Simplifying

x = 6 + -1.5y
