Given: 7x + 2 = 2 + 5x – 6 Prove: x = –3 Given the equation 7x + 2 = 2 + 5x – 6, use the commutative property to rearrange the terms so that like terms are next to one another. This gives the equation 7x + 2 = 2 – 6 + 5x. Then use the ____________________ to group the like terms. This gives the equation 7x + 2 = (2 – 6) + 5x. Next, combine like terms to get the equation 7x + 2 = –4 + 5x. Use the subtraction property of equality to subtract 5x from both sides of the equation. This gives the equation 2x + 2 = –4. Then use the subtraction property of equality again to subtract 2 from both
