    Start by distributing both right side and left side.

    1st apply distributive property we get 10x-5=4x+12 group x terms to one side, when we take a number to otherside of equation (= sign ) change the sign of the number ie; 10x-4x=12+5 6x=17

    wait i forgeot to put a negative 4 so it's like 5(2x-1)=-4(x+3) would that equal to x= -2??
