2x=60 Step 1: is not needed since there are no fractions. Step 2: is not needed since there are no parentheses. Step 3: is not needed. Step 4: the equation is linear. Step 5: is not needed cause all variable terms on one side And all numbers on the other side. Step 6:$\frac{2x}{2}=\frac{60}{2}$ Divide both sides by 2. $x=30$ Final Step: check: $2\times30=60$
