Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
Given the expression: 5x - 7 = 2368
What is the value of x?

From other forum... Can you give an answer ? Curiosity

Wow... I could solve this when I was 10.
5x-7=2368
5x=2368+7
5x=2375
x=2375/5
x=475
Wow, incredible

Is this a joke that went over my head?
Or do your doubt the GBAtemp community's ability to do basic algebra.

Given the average IQ of this community, I would even doubt its capacity to solve 2+2.

I was too fast. My average math grade is currently still 18.9/20 (I'm in 12th grade.)

5x - 2375 = 0
5x = 2375
x = 2375 / 5
=

Edit 475

I have this weird question, how does a number that ends in 5, that is a multiple of 5, give a non integer result when divided by 5?
Hmmmmm.... science!

I take it back. Now I am doubting the GBAtemp community's ability to do basic algebra.

To all you guys that can't do this, that's fine. There's nothing wrong with that. But I hope you don't want to be a programmer, or do any game development in the future. I will tell you right now you will need to know linear algebra (not this, linear algebra is a college course that comes after calculus) at the bare minimum.

A programmer, or an engineer, or an accountant, or...
Better get into a non-math heavy field.
