Distribute 2 to the brackets...

2. nohegarcia

2x + 2(3) = 5 2x + 6 = 5 2x = -1 x = -1/

3. waterineyes

$a(b+c) \implies a \cdot b + a \cdot c$

4. nohegarcia

x=-1/2

5. shivraj

x=-1

6. zzr0ck3r

x=-1/2 is correct.

7. shivraj

thnks a lot

8. waterineyes

If you want to verify then put x = -1/2 in the equation above and check if you are getting left hand side equal to right hand side..

9. shivraj

step1: 2x + 6 = 5 subtract 6 on both sides 2x + 6 - 6 = 5 - 6 2x = -1 Step2: divide by 2 on both sides x = -1/2

Wow.. Well Done...
