    Doesn't work that way. Prove that you can do SOEMTHING. 0.26(x+40)+0.37(x+20)=-20 Do one piece at a time. 0.26(x+40) Can you expand that?

    There you have it. Which part of that could you not do previously? Now add them all up! 0.26x + 10.4 + 0.37x + 7.4

    0.26x + 0.37x = 0.63x 10.4 + 7.4 = 17.8 Why are you feeling a need to subtract? Did you write the problem statement incorrectly?

    You'll have to be more clear. is "2/5x" this \(\dfrac{2}{5x}\) or this\(\dfrac{2}{5}x\)? Use parentheses to be clear.

    \[\frac{ 2 }{ 5 }x\]
