    because if u have -2(x-5) you have to have x be positive othersie you anser will be negative.

    **Distributive property. a(b + c) = ab + ac -2(x - 5) = -4 -2x + 10 = -4 Solve for x. -2x + 10 = -4 Subtract 10. -2x = -14 Divide by -2. x = 7

    distribute -2 on left side -2(x)-(-2)(5)=-4 -2x+10=-4 10+4=2x x=10+4/2=?
