To solve this equation, you would want to isolate the variable x. Here's how you would do it: Firstly, combine like terms - you would add 2x to both sides of the equation: 3x + 2x = -2x + 2x + 36 That simplifies to: 5x + 1 = 36 Then, subtract 1 from both sides to completely isolate the x terms: 5x + 1 - 1 = 36 -1 Simplified, that's: 5x = 35 Lastly, divide both sides by 5 to give you x on its own: 5x / 5 = 35 / 5 So, x = 7.
