Solving equations takes care and attention to detail. Follow the rules and you can solve the problem.
I suggest that you speak aloud the rules or write out the rules as you are working through the problem. This will reinforce the rules and hopefully prevent mistakes being made.
The words “ on both sides ” will be most useful to you, so phrases
“ subtract from both sides...”, “ divide both sides by...”, etc...
