Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes, then you solve from there, by adding 15 to both sides. And then adding 15 again and then dividing everything by 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do 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
