    To solve the equation 2x + 5 = 17, we need to isolate the variable x on one side of the equation. Here are the steps to solve it:

    Step 1: Start with the given equation: 2x + 5 = 17.

    Step 2: Subtract 5 from both sides of the equation to isolate the term with x:

    2x + 5 – 5 = 17 – 5

    2x = 12.

    Step 3: Divide both sides of the equation by 2 to solve for x:

    2x/2 = 12/2

    x = 6.

    Therefore, the solution to the equation 2x + 5 = 17 is x = 6.
