You have to find x.. Just suppose that 22 is not the answer for 10 minutes.. @Gretchen2013

x – (5 – 3x + 2) = 15 + 3x < VERY SIMPLE equation. First we want to do distributive property. We want to distribute the negative sign to the (53x+2) So then the equation will become.. x5+3x2=15+3x Now that we have our new equation > x5+3x2=15+3x Lets break it down a bit more, By combining like terms! We will combine our x's together. so.. x5+3x2=15+3x will become.. 4x52=15+3x Now, that we have combined our x's on one side, let us also combine the simple numbers together. So.. 4x52=15+3x will become.. 4x7=15+3x Now that we have our new equation > 4x7=15+3x This will become very easy to solve! 4x7=15+3x We can start by adding the 7 to both sides. 4x7=15+3x +7 +7  4x=22+3x now we will subtract 3x on both sides. 4x=22+3x 3x 3x  x=22
