What’s the answer for 13 + x = 62
To solve this equation, follow the rules for step by step solving an equation.
First, isloate the variable on one side of the equation. (Get x alone by itself.)
To do this, first figure out what operation is being done with x, and choose the opposite.
In this case 13 is being added to x.
And the opposite of addition is subtraction.
Remember, that anything you do to one side of the equation, you have to do to the other side of the equation.
SO 13 + x = 62 subtract 13 from both sides of the equation.
x = 49
To check: put value you found for x back into the original equation: 13 + x = 62
DOES 13 + 49 = 62???
Solve: 62 = 62
