$5x-12=38$

The solution of equation is **10**.

The given equation is $5x-12=38$.

Solve the given equation by shifting the constant from left hand side to right hand side.

$\begin{array}{c}5x-12=38\\ 5x=38+12\\ 5x=50\end{array}$

Divide the equation by 5.

$\begin{array}{c}\frac{5x}{5}=\frac{50}{5}\\ x=10\end{array}$

Hence, the value of *x* after solving the equation is 10.

Substitute 10 for *x* in the given equation

$\begin{array}{c}5\left(10\right)-12=38\\ 50-12=38\\ 38=38\end{array}$
