In basic algebraic equations all the variables are on left side of the equation. But as the complexity of the problems increases you will find that the equations will contain variables on both sides of the equation. To solve these kinds of problems first simplify the equations on each side of the equation. You can use the distributive law to do this. Next try to cancel the variable on the right side of equation by adding the negative value of that variable to both the sides of the equation. Now you simplified the problem with having variable on only the left hand side. Finally solve for the variable by using the algebraic operations. This video shows how to solve equations with variables on both sides.
