Well you must have been taught it. Or have some idea at least. We aren’t allowed to give you answers or tell you how to do it, only correct mistakes or hint and the next step. No what do you think you should do? Or do you literally have no idea? If it’s the latter I think you should try and fix your maths basics than attempting questions you haven’t been taught and don’t know how to do.

So you want it equal to x so add 3 to both sides to get 2x/7=5 then you times both sides by 7 2x=35 then finally divide by two to get final answer.
