Hey there!

“12x - 24 = 180”

ADD by 24 on BOTH SIDES

12 - 24 + 24 = 180 + 24

CANCEL out: -24 + 24 because that gives 0

KEEP: 180 + 24 = 204

New equation:

12x = 204

DIVIDE 12 on BOTH SIDES

12x / 12 = 204 / 12

CANCEL out: 12 / 12 because of that gives you 1

KEEP: 204 / 12 because that gives the value “x”

204 / 12 = x

204 / 12 = 17

x = 17 ☑️

Good luck on your assignment and enjoy your day!
