lol i love equations!

first you have to get the 29-x out of ( ) so you flip it instead of - it's +

then you combine the like unknown numbers. there are 2 so 2x means 2 times what ever x is

then to narrow it down you add 29 to the other side cause you have to flip the - and add it to the other side to get rid of if

then to get rid of the 2x (which i said means two times x) you have to divide the number on the other side by the 2

then it leaves you with x = 17 so to check it plug 17 into the original equation

## Guys, I'm having a trouble in understanding this number problem.....Just see the details.....please

The sum of 2 numbers is 29, while their difference is 5...Here's the equation---

x-(29-x)=5

x-29+x=5

2x-29=5

2x=34

x=17

can u pls tell me why this happened????

I need ur help....

I need this asap before monday...

thanks
