    factor -5 out the first term -5(3x - 2) so you have -5(3x-2) over -5 cancel the -1 answer: 3x-2

    the -5 is suppose to be under the 15x + 10 it looks like a fraction

    so its (15x + 10)/5 factor the numerator, by taking out a 5 you get 5(3x + 2) this numerator is then canceled with the 5 on the bottom to get (3x + 2) not sure if it's 15x or - 15x

    take 2/3 times both x and 1 you get 2/3x + 2/3 then + 10 combine 2/3 + 10 answer 2/3x + 10 2/3
