 # 11+x-2=3x-11

## Enter Equation or Inequality

Solve the following equation
11+x-2=3x-11

Solve for x
11 + x - 2 = 3x - 11

11 - 2 = 9

x + 9 = 3x - 11

## Group variables

Group our variables x and 3x
subtract 3x from both sides
x + 9 - 3x = 3x - 11 - 3x

-2x + 9 = -11

## Group constants

Group our constants 9 and -11.
subtract 9 from both sides
-2x + 9 - 9 = -11 - 9

-2x = -20

## Divide each side of the equation by -2

 -2x -2
 =
 -20 -2

x = 10

x = 10
