To find the value of x in the equation 3x – 5 = 16, we need to isolate x on one side of the equation by performing inverse operations.

Adding 5 to both sides of the equation gives:

3x – 5 + 5 = 16 + 5

Simplifying the left-hand side and evaluating the right-hand side, we get:

3x = 21

Finally, we can isolate x by dividing both sides of the equation by 3:

3x/3 = 21/3

Simplifying the left-hand side, we obtain:

x = 7

Therefore, the value of x in the equation 3x – 5 = 16 is 7.
