    you'll be left with 4c divide each side by 4 and that's how you get what c equals

    you should have gotten -5 when you combine like terms to get rid of the -5 you have to add 5

    5g+4(5 + 3g) = 2 - g 5g + 4(8g) = 2-g 5g+32g = 2 - g 37g = 1g 37 = g

    you can't combine 5 and 3g because 5 doesn't have a g that threw off your math you were supposed to begin with the distributive property again
