you want to add 5 to both sides 2x-5=17                                                              +5  +5 the 5 ends up canceling and you are left with 2x=17+5 , add the five to the other side 2x=22  then divide just the 2 on both sides 2x/2=22/2 the 2 in the 2x cancels out  x=22/2 divide 22 into 2 and it eaquals 11 therefore  x=11
