A.Given the equation 5x − 4 = –2(3x + 2), solve for the variable. Explain each step and justify your process.
B.Megan solved a similar equation below. Is Megan's solution correct? Explain why or why not.
3(2x − 4) = 5x − 1
6x − 12 = 5x − 1
11x − 12 = –1
11x = 11
x = 11

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since you multiplied 2 with 3x, it's 6x. \[\large 5x  4 = 6x 4 => 5x  4 + 6x = 6x  4 + 6x => 11x 4 = 4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Instead of putting this symbol \[=>\] just press 'enter' and go to the line below. also you need to solve for x. \[\large 11x  4 = 4 \] \[\large 11x  4 + 4 = 4 + 4\] \[\large 11x = 0\] this shows that x is 0
