    I first followed PEMDAS and the first thing that shows up in the expression is that you have to first distribute 5 into all the numbers in the parenthesis so 5 x 3x would be 15x, 5 times -7 would be -35, and 5 times 2x would be 10x.. then I rewrite the expression as 15x-35+10x+9+8x and then the next step would be to combine like terms and you end up with 33x-26 and I left it at that as simplified being that there's no number that goes into both 33 and 26
