Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay 5(2x – 3) = 5 you remove the bracket like this: 5(2x  3) is actually 5*2x  5*3, right? so now you have: 10x  15 = 5 then yo need to let the x's be on one side and everything else on the other side. on the left side, you have a negative 15 and you don't want it there, so you add 15 to both sides of the equation and you have: 10x = 20 now you see that both sides are divisible by 10, so you divide them and you have: x=2
