    2(5x-1) + (-3x - 1) = (4)(9/2) 10x - 1 + 3x - 1 = 36/2 13x - 2 = 18 13x = 20 x = 20/13

    (5x-1)2 + (-3x - 1)/4 =9/2 I would multiply all terms by 4 2(5x-1) +(-3x - 1) =18 remove parens 10x-2-3x-1=18 Now consolidate similar terms. 7x-3=18 add 3 to both sides 7x=21 x= 3 dividing both sides by 7
