that didnt help me i dont understand

Do you agree that I can add any constant to both sides of the equations and it would remain intact? For example, 2 + 4 = 6 --> (2+4)+8 = 6+8? The same holds true for subtraction as well. To find x, you need to bring all the numbers to one side and take x to the other.
