What is x in 5-2x+9-3=3x+2

This is an algebra equation, where I have to solve the variable x.  My question is, What is x in 5-2x+9-3-3x+2

Andrene M.

It should read:  What is x in 5-2x+9-3=3x+2

Hi, Andrene.

The problem as written here is not an equation, meaning there is no equal sign, so you can't solve for x. You can combine like terms and get  -5x+13  but I suspect that is not what you are looking for. Double-check your problem and see if one of the signs should have been an =.
