    Yes, then you solve from there, by adding 15 to both sides. And then adding 15 again and then dividing everything by 3.

    Do the opposite of PEMDAS. 3(x - 5) - 15 = 48 3(x - 5) = 63 x - 5 = 21 x = 26 If you do it the way you started: 3(x - 5) - 15 = 48 3x - 15 - 15 = 48 3x - 30 = 48 3x = 78 x = 26
