Simplifying Algebraic Expression
Using the Distributive Property & Combining Like Terms
Simplify:
3 (2+3x) + x  5
3(2) + 3 (3x) + x  5
Answer  6 + 3(3x) + x  5
Is the answer is correct??? I'm getting a bit confused and struggling a lot in this problem. Please help me!

Your answer isn't simplified.
3 (2+3x) + x  5
6  9x + x  5
8x  11

This is wrong. You were suppose to use the distributive property. Here, let me show you:
3(2+3x)+x5
= 6+9x+ x5
Then, you combine liketerms:
65= 11
and then 9x+x= 8x
Thus, your answer should be 118x.
Hope I helped you a little bit.

No. You didn't simplify.
3 (2 + 3x) + x  5
6 9x + x 5
Combine like terms, then you are done.

Joey is right you suppose to do the combine like terms at the end, but you simplify thought.
Thank You Ms. Sue.
