Solving for variable 'x'.

Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right.

Add '-24x' to each side of the equation.
24 + -24x = 24x + -24x

Combine like terms: 24x + -24x = 0
24 + -24x = 0

Add '-24' to each side of the equation.
24 + -24 + -24x = 0 + -24

Combine like terms: 24 + -24 = 0
0 + -24x = 0 + -24
-24x = 0 + -24

Combine like terms: 0 + -24 = -24
-24x = -24

Divide each side by '-24'.
x = 1

Simplifying
x = 1```
