Help me please 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.1for A Let's solve your equation stepbystep. 5x−4=−2(3x+2) Step 1: Simplify both sides of the equation. 5x−4=−2(3x+2) Simplify: (Hide steps) Let's simplify stepbystep. 5x−4=−2(3x+2) 5x+−4=(−2)(3x)+(−2)(2)(Distribute) 5x+−4=−6x+−4 5x−4=−6x−4 Step 2: Add 6x to both sides. 5x−4+6x=−6x−4+6x 11x−4=−4 Step 3: Add 4 to both sides. 11x−4+4=−4+4 11x=0 Step 4: Divide both sides by 11. 11x/11 = 0 11 x=0 Answer: x=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Shes right Let's solve your equation stepbystep. 3(2x−4)=5x−1 Step 1: Simplify both sides of the equation. 3(2x−4)=5x−1 Simplify: (Hide steps) Let's simplify stepbystep. 3(2x−4)=5x−1 (3)(2x)+(3)(−4)=5x+−1(Distribute) 6x+−12=5x+−1 6x−12=5x−1 Step 2: Subtract 5x from both sides. 6x−12−5x=5x−1−5x x−12=−1 Step 3: Add 12 to both sides. x−12+12=−1+12 x=11 Answer: x=11
