62 is equivalent to 43+19. so we have 43+19-5+3x2=25. By moving the +19 to the RHS we are left with
43-5+3x2=25+19 ==> 43-5+6 = 44 ==>44=44
I began this approach by looking into re-writing the constants as quotients (as in 275/55=5, then move the numerator 275 above the 25 to get 11, but this equation eventually works out to 13=11...) I am aware that my final method is not as eloquent as my original attempt, but I think it warrants being a correct answer. (and possibly spark some new ideas outside of the box) Afterall, I don't think anyone would argue with (62 is equivalent to 43+19).
