In order for you to understand the steps, there are a couple of words you need to know.

Variable - the unknown

-use a letter to represent a number

Constant - the integer in an algebraic expression or equation

Rules for Addition/Subtraction :

1.Isolate the variable

2.Cancel using the opposite operation (create a zero pair)

3.Balance on the other side of the equal sign

4.Verify your answer
