solve
7x+5(3x4)=217x
7x+(15x20=7x21
8x20=7x21
7 7
8x20+7x=21
1x20=21
20 20
1x/1 = 1/1
x=1

Algebra HELP! 
Reiny,
ok, but I am puzzled by your lines such as
7 7 and
20 20
When you show solutions to equations each new line should contain an equal sign separating the left side from the right side.
Inserting such lines as you have interrupts the "flow" of equations from one to the other.
In my class you would have lost a mark for "bad form".
