Question

It has been twenty-plus years since I graduated high school and completed any type of math courses through a higher education institution. Therefore, could you please refresh my memory for the reason(s) why one determines which side to add or subtract from a certain side when solving linear equations? For example: 2(x-8)+8x=4x+6(x-3)

2x-16+8x=4x+6x-18

10x-16=10x-18 (here is where my question comes into play - why subtract 16 from 18 and not the other way around)

Step 1

First of all, you took the wrong example of linear equation, because here 10*x* will be cancelled out and then 16=18, which is absurd.

So, take the equation as:

Step 2

Now, further sim...
