#### Answer

add 5 from both sides of the equation.
7 + 5 = 6x - 5 +5
12 = 6x

#### Work Step by Step

7 = 6x - 5
Step 1 : Add or subtract the same amount on both sides of the equation so that the variable term ends up by itself on one side.
add 5 from both sides of the equation.
7 + 5 = 6x - 5 +5
12 = 6x
