# How to Solve Algebra Problems With Two Variables on the Same Side

By Stefan RobertSolving algebra problems with two variables on the same side will require you to get the variables by themselves. Solve algebra problems with two variables on the same side with help from an expert in computers, with two degrees in both Computer Science and Applied Mathematics in this free video clip.

Hi, my name is Stefan. Today, I'm going to be speaking on how to solve algebra problems with two variables on the same side. Let's say for example we have the equation 2X + 8 + 4X - 44 = 0. Alright the first thing you want to do is try to collect the terms with variables in it and combine them and add so in this case we get 6X + 8 - 44 = 0. And now you want to simplify and you get 6X - 36 = 0 and so you get 6X = 36 and now when we divide both sides by 6 we get X = 6.
