-4(2x-3) = -8x +5

Is there an actual answer for this one?

No. There is no answer, the question is flawed, impossible.

No, it isnt. the initial step of -4 times 2 is -8, not -1 as you posted. Also, you added eight x to both sides in the second line, but it became a negative on the left. Cant do that.

-4x+12=8x+5

-4x-8x=5-12

-12x=-7

x=12/7

i think this mught be right
