Start by combining like terms, like the -5 and -4, and the 160 and -17
ok 2(2x-9)=153
Okay, now divide both sides by 2

2x-9=72.5?
you mean distribute?
Oh wait, you made a mistake when you subtracted the 17, it should have been 143
Then add nine to both sides, and divide by two, and you should have your answer
got confused.. ops
So back to the beginning. 2(2x-5-4)=160-17
You can reduce this to 2(2x-9)=143
right
So, without having to distribute the 2, since its already on the outside, you can just divide both sides by 2
ok
Now you can add nine to both sides to get the x term by itself
\[2\left(2x-5-4\right)=160-17\quad :\quad x=\frac{161}{4}\quad \left(\mathrm{Decimal:\quad }x=40.25\right)\]
Yes, after you add the nine, divide both sides by 2 to get your final answer, 40.25
ohhhh thankss guyss thanks for the explination
turn up
What is the solution to the following equation? 2(3x − 7) + 18 = 10 1 3 5 6
\[2\left(3x-7\right)+18=10\quad :\quad x=1\] 2(3x − 7) + 18 = 10 6x-14+18=10 6x+4=10 subtract 4 on both sides 6x-4+4=10-4 6x=6 x=1
are you understand @bby.nessa
yea i understand thanks
just take every terms without x to the right side of equation to get the value of x it's simple first try your own then ask for explanation that's the way of learning.
