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:
= -6+-9x+ x-5
Then, you combine like-terms:
and then -9x+x= -8x
Thus, your answer should be -11-8x.
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.
Brooke and I also gave you the correct answer.
Thank you!!! :)
