@pooja195 is right. Combine like variables together, and do the same for constants. Then, simplify the expression into a [ variable + constant ] format. That's how you'll get your answer @Jbadd56

problem to solve is: -x - 2 +15x Because of the minus sign x becomes - x The answer is -x -x-2 evaluates to -x-2 Multiply x and 15 Multiply x and 1 The x just gets copied along. The answer is x x 15*x evaluates to 15x -x + 15x = 14x The answer is 14x-2 -x-2+15*x evaluates to 14x-2 The final answer is what?
