#### Storyboard Text

• We have a problem to solve. A two-step equation, to be exact. It is -5x-12=23.
• We need to simplify the equation -5x-12=23. We will add 12 to each side to get rid of the subtract 12. The add 12 on the left side is the inverse operation, and we have to add 12 on the other for the equality property of subtraction.
• So we added 12 to each side, right. Okay, now time to see if you had the correct answer of -5x=35. This is the simplify step.
• So we have -5x=35, and now we need to divide each side by -5 to isolate the variable and because we are multiplying. The division on the left is inverse operation, and the division on the right is the equality property of division.
• That rabbit divided each side by 5, so we should now have a solution of x=-7. This is the solution of our equation -5x-12=23, and our solution step.
• "Yawn" Yeah, it's done, now leave me alone, I'm trying to sleep!
• Jerks! Can't a dog have his own privacy and sleep time! I mean, look at the sky, it's pitch black!
