First, we explain how to isolate the variable to be solved for on one side of the equal sign by performing the opposite operation. Next, the constant terms are moved to the other side of the equal sign. The result is that we have solved for the unknown value of the variable. In these equations, there is only one solution, but finding the solution requires multiple steps (operations).
