1.  4a + 3 = -5

2.  0.3x - 4.2 = 2.7

3.   2x + 4 = -12
5
4.  2(-3a + 5) = -4(a + 4)

5. -6x + 9 = 4(5 - x)

6.  4 - 7x = 1 - 6x

7.  7x - 3 = 2(x + 6)

Write the equation and solve for the next three problems.

Example:  Twice a number, diminished (subtract) by 17 is (equals) -3.  Find the number.

2x - 17 = -3
+17    +17
2x = 14  Divide both sides by 2.
x = 7
