To brush up on how to solve linear equations, try here. :wink:

Once you have reminded yourself of the basic terms and techniques, please attempt the exercise. If you get stuck, you can then reply with a clear listing of your steps and reasoning, starting with subtracting the 3 to the right-hand side of the equation.

Thank you! :D

if there is something with brackets, you need to do it first... so multiply the " -5 " by the numbers and variables inside the brackets, then it's going to be easy
