Given
2X-A=X+B
2X-A+A=X+B+A
$⇒2X=X+B+A$
$⇒$ Subtract X from both sides
$2X-X=X+B+A-X\right)$
$⇒X=X-X+B+A$
$⇒X=B+A$
$=\left[\begin{array}{cc}0& -2\\ 1& 3\\ 4& -3\end{array}\right]+\left[\begin{array}{cc}5& 3\\ -3& -1\\ -2& -5\end{array}\right]$
$=\left[\begin{array}{cc}5& -2+3\\ 1-3& 3-1\\ 4-2& -3-5\end{array}\right]$
$=\left[\begin{array}{cc}5& 1\\ -2& 2\\ 2& -8\end{array}\right]$
Step 2
We have used basic matrix addition laws.
