    you seem to have an extra = sign, perhaps it should be 4-5(a+2)=3(a+1)-1 or something?

    This leads to a direct contradiction, so there is a typo

    I'm going to assume it is 4-5(a+2)=3(a+1)-1 4-5a-10=3a+3-1 8a=-8 a=-1 which would give applepie's answer, so that is probably what the problem is supposed to be

    IF the equation is as I typed it, then yes. If it is as you typed it there is no solution.
