    First, distribute. 10x-40+15=-15 Then, add like terms. 10x-25=-15 Add 25 to both sides. 10x=10 Divide. x=1

    Those are the basic steps. All you have to do is add in longer words and definitions. Just talk about how you have to add like terms and such. Just expand on it. It isn't that hard if you try. Just try it by yourself once.
