Algebra homework to do and I need help

First you identify your variable, for our sake lets use x:

x= number in question

Next you write the equation given in the question:

2(x-5)= x+25

Next you use the distributive property and multiply 2 by both x and negative 5 to get:

2x-10=x+25

Now you want to get all of the x's to one side so you subtract the x on the right, fro the one on the left giving you:

x-10=25

Then you simply add 10 to 25 giving you the answer of x=35.
