Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@eclipse18 you incorrectly turned \(5(k+2) \) into \(5k + 10\) because you forgot to apply the negative sign when multiplying 5 and 2. It's a common mistake!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually, you turned it into 5k + 12, I can't explain how you got the 12, but 10 I can :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes that what I had said the answer was K=28 6(k – 3) – 5(k + 2) because when you takr 6 times the K you get 6k and than take the six times 3 and get 6k18 than take the 5 times the K you get 5k than take 5 times +2 and 5k10 next you take 6k5k=k than you 1810 because we . we add the 1810 which results in K=28

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@whpalmer4 Yeah I realized that later, sorry. I was tired and accidently did 6 times 2, not 5 times 2. My bad.
