Hi all,

So I;m having a bit of trouble with my homework.

Question:

Solve the equation and state a reason for each step:

1. x + 5 = 7

2. x - 6 = -3

3. 3x + 4 = 13

4. x + 5 = 2x

5. 2(4x + 2) = 20

6. -(-3x + 2) = 13

So the solving for x part is very simple. I'm juts not sure how to state a reason. Would I just say something like "Addition property of equality?"

Thanks,

Daring
