Place all like terms on one side. The numbers 8 and 14 are like terms. To remove the 8 from the left side of the equation, we subtract 8. To keep a balance, we need to subtract 8 from the 14 on the other side. 2x + 8 - 8 = 14 - 8 2x = 6 2. Isolate the variable you need to solve for. In this problem, we obtain x by dividing both sides of the equation by 2. The value of x is the result when 6 is divided by 2. 4 LEARNING CHEMISTRY: KEY MATH SKILLS 15 3. Check your answer. Check your answer by substituting your value for x back into the original equation.
