a
Start by gathering all -terms on one side of the equation. In order to avoid negative -terms, it's convenient to add on both sides.
Thus, solves the equation.
b
Once again, we gather all variables on one side. In this case, the right-hand side is most convenient.
The solution to the equation is
c
Begin by combining like terms on the right-hand side. Then, use inverse operations to isolate
