I tried using my calculator and punching in the choices to figure out what x is and none of them equaled 10 so idk what i did wrong
Find the value of x that will make the following numerical expression equal to − 10 .
5^2+(x+2)/4(6)
(a)−1 (b)−3 (c)2 (d)1 (e)3

(5^2+(x+2))/4(6) = 10
(25 + (x+2))/(4+6) = 10
(25 + (x+2))/2 = 10
25 + x + 2 = 20
23 + x = 20
x = 20 + 23
x = 3
so, it's letter (E).
hope this helps~ :)
