so then it would be -40 times -6 = 2 times -6? or something like that

- anonymous

sorry im having alot of trouble focusing cri

- anonymous

\[-4(x+10)-6=-3(x-2)\]\[-4x-40-6=-3x+6\]

- anonymous

add like terma as in the x variable

- anonymous

terms**

- anonymous

\[-4x-46=-3x+6\]

- anonymous

Now try to get the like terms grouped together.

- anonymous

Are you getting it so far ? @misty_fox

- anonymous

Yes im just trying writing it down on paper, one sec

- anonymous

-46?

- anonymous

Ya. -40-6 = -46. I combined those numbers in the second step.

- anonymous

So what's next ? @misty_fox

- anonymous

would that be the final answer tho? cuz that is one of the options

- anonymous

You would have to bring the x terms on one side of the equation after that 3rd step. Do you know how to do that?

- anonymous

Yea i did that and i got -47 but its closest to -46 and i might have did it wrong but idk

- anonymous

\[-4x-46=-3x+6\]\[-4x+3x=46+6\]\[-x=52\]\[x=-52\]

- anonymous

Is -52 one of the answer choices?

- anonymous

I just got that too ^^^

- anonymous

Okay great! :)

- anonymous

Did you get that @misty_fox?

- anonymous

Yes sorry i was afk, thank you very much! :)

- anonymous

You're welcome!
