Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So first you need to set up an equation. You already have the left side (5x + 15), now you just need what it is equal to. Can you tell me that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Exactly. So now we have 90=5x+15 Do you follow?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So first you subtract 15 on each side: 90=5x5 15 This results in: 75=5x Then you simply divide by 5 on each side: 75=5x /5 This results in: x = 15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I know you said you can solve equations, but I suggest you study that a bit more in detail, because the equation I just did was really, really basic.
