    Ok so now we have 45 - 15 = w • 9 – 5 • 3 no we simplify the right side of the equal sign. Whats 9-5 x 3?

    because you are distributing the 5 in the set of numbers. 5(9 - 3) is the same as 5 x 9 - 5 x 3

    Good its 12. So now we have 45 - 15 = w x 12. So lets work from left to right. What is 45 -15?

    Awesome! So now we have 30 = w x 12. So laslty we are going to do the opposite of one side to the other. Instead of multiplying by 12 on the right, lets divide by 12 on the left. SO- 30/12 = w What is 30/12?
