Balancing equation is a very important and frequently used concept in Algebra and in Math. When two equations are equated to each other, in order to solve for ‘x’, every term beside ‘x’ is removed step by step and ‘like terms’ are combined. Balance equation calculator is the tool helpful in getting the solution after balancing algebraic equations.

Example 1: Given is the balanced equation, 3x – 5 = 4x + 7. Solve the equation to get the value of ‘x’.

In order to solve for ‘x’, we have to add/subtract few terms on either side of the equation!

Subtract ‘4x’ on both sides to balance equation 3x–5–4x = 4x+7–4x

Combine the like terms -x–5=7

Add ‘5’ on both sides  -x–5+5 = 7+5

Combine the like terms  -x=12

Divide ‘-1’ on both sides  (-x/-1) = (12/-1)

x = -12


Example 2: Given is the balanced equation,2x – 6 = 5x - 1. Solve the equation to get the value of ‘x’.

In order to solve for ‘x’, we have to add/subtract few terms on either side of the equation!

Subtract ‘5x’ on both sides to balance equation  2x-6-5x = 5x-1-5x

Combine the like terms -3x-6 = -1

Add ‘6’ on both sides -3x-6+6 = -1+6

Combine the like terms -3x = 5

Divide ‘-3’ on both sides  (-3x/-3) = (5/-3)

x = -5/3
