Solve 3(x – 5) – 15 = 48? totally forgot how to do these.. is it (3x-15)-15=48 then solve from there or what?
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
ah okay was doing it here beat me to it thank you
