can you simplify the left hand side first?

No, I don't believe so

2(x + 1), you need to distribute here, are you familiar with distributing?
anonymous
  • anonymous
actually yes.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so please distribute to simplify that

2x + 2 right ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
so now you have 2x + 2 = 2x + 5
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
now subtract 2x from both sides
anonymous
  • anonymous
what do you end up with?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ummm... I think it is 2x = 2x + 3
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think I did it wrong
anonymous
  • anonymous
well that is correct, if you subtract 2 from both sides, but i was saying to subtract 2x from both sides
anonymous
  • anonymous
so if you have 2x + 2 = 2x + 5, and you subtract 2x from both sides you get 2 = 5, since 2 does not equal 5 this does not have any solutions

hint: if we apply the distributive property of multiplication over addition at left side, we can write this: 2x+2=2x+5
