Algebraic Equation: 5x+7=32
The objective is to get the X by itself. 
Treat the "5x" as one number first.
1. Subtract both sides of the equal sign by 7. Basically, you are moving 7 to the other side and just changing the sign. The 7 was + before, and now it is a - because it was moved over.
2. Now you have 5x=32-7. Simplify the equation further into 5x=25.
3. Remember the end goal to algebraic equations is to isolate the x, so just divide both sides by 5. 
4. Answer: x = 5
