# thank everyone that site helped but now i just have to practice. for now can someone tell me how does 3x=7-4x x=1

which one do you minus or subtract from the equation?

3x = 7 - 4x

The first thing you need to do is get the unknowns on one side of the equation. You also need to change the sign of the part you move.

3x + 4x = 7

7x = 7

x = 1

I answered my own question is this right? 3x=7-4x 3x+4x=7-4x+4x

7x=7 7divided by 7 is one

Right! :-)

## Yes, you're absolutely correct! Great job on solving the equation.

To solve the equation 3x = 7 - 4x, you need to move the term containing x to one side and all constants to the other side. In this case, you'll want to add 4x to both sides to eliminate the -4x term on the right side:

3x + 4x = 7 - 4x + 4x

This simplifies to:

7x = 7

Now, you can solve for x by dividing both sides of the equation by 7:

x = 7/7

Simplifying further:

x = 1

So, your answer is indeed x = 1. Well done! Keep practicing to strengthen your skills.
