How do You Solve Two Step Equations?

A two step equation looks something like this 4x + 5 = 37 with the goal being to find the value of x. To solve, first subtract 5 from both sides of the equal sign ( 4x = 5 – 5 = 37 – 5), the result would be 4x = 32. The next step is to divide both sides by 4 (4x / 4 = 32 / 4) with a result of x = 8
