7x+12=13x

get the like terms on the same side. you can combine the 7x and 13x, but the 12 is by itself. so, make it that way. I subtracted the 7x from both sides, b/c it cancels out the 7x on the left, and is 13-7 on the right

12=6x

2=x

7x + 12 = 13x

put the x's together by subtracting 7x on both sides.

12 = 6x

divide both sides by 6 to isolate x

x=2

12=6x

x=2

I subtracted 7x from both sides and then divided by 6.

Hope that helps :)
