To solve the equation 2x – 7 – (x – 5) = 0:

- Distribute the negative sign inside the parentheses: 2x – 7 – x + 5 = 0.
- Combine like terms: 2x – x – 7 + 5 = 0, which simplifies to x – 2 = 0.
- Add 2 to both sides: x – 2 + 2 = 0 + 2.
- The equation becomes x = 2.

To solve the equation (2x - 7 - (x - 5) = 0), follow these steps:

- Remove the parentheses using the distributive property:

[2x - 7 - x + 5 = 0]

- Combine like terms:

[2x - x - 7 + 5 = 0] [x - 2 = 0]

- Add 2 to both sides of the equation:

[x - 2 + 2 = 0 + 2] [x = 2]

So, the solution to the equation (2x - 7 - (x - 5) = 0) is (x = 2).
