Step | Equation | Description |
---|---|---|
1 | x + 3 = 5 | This is the equation to simplify. |
2 | x + 3 - 3 = 5 - 3 | Subtract 3 from both sides. The 3 - 3 on the left side of the equation is a zero sum. |
3 | x + 0 = 2 | Simplify the constant terms |
4 | x = 2 | Apply the additive property of zero to transform x + 0 to x. This is the solution. |
