3x-5(3x-7)= 2(x+9) + 45

3x-15x+35= 2x+18 +45

-12x + 35 = 2x+63

-12x -28 = 2x

-12 -28 =x

-40 =x

3x-5(3x-7)= 2(x+9) + 45

3x-15x+35= 2x+18 +45

-12x + 35 = 2x+63

-10x+35=63

-10x=28

x=-2.8

you are both wrong!

3x - 15x + 35 = 2x + 18 + 45

-12x - 2x = 63 - 35

-14x = 28

x = -2

test my answer, it works
