# What is the solution of 3x + 5 = 2x - 7?

**Solution:**

The problem is based on linear equations in one variable.

Let's transpose the terms in the given equation

3x + 5 = 2x - 7

3x - 2x = -7 - 5 → shifting the terms from LHS to RHS and vice-versa.

x = -12

Thus, -12 is the solution for 3x + 5 = 2x - 7.

## What is the solution of 3x + 5 = 2x - 7?

**Summary:**

The solution of 3x + 5 = 2x - 7 is x = -12.
