could you walk-through the steps to solving this problem because I am stuck;
3x-5(3x-7)=2(x+9)+45

Let me know if you have a question in any step.

3x-5(3x-7)=2(x+9)+45
3x-15x+35= 2x+18+45
-12x+35 = 2x+63
-35 -35
-12x= 2x +63-35
-12x= 2x +28
-2x -2x

-12x-2x = 28

-14x= 28
-14x/-14= 28/-14
x = -2

to check just substitute the answer for x to ever x in the original problem.

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

3(-2)-5(3(-2)-7)=2(-2+9)+45
-6 -5 (-6-7)= 2(7)+45
-6-5(-13)=14+45
-6+65=59
59=59 it checks.


You really helped me out. I know see how to work out other problems like this one. Thank you very much!!!

    you know that 8x = 5y you know that 3y=14z since 5 = (5/3)*3, 5y = (5/3)*(3y) so, 5y = (5/3)(3y) = (5/3)(14z) = (70/3)z now you have 5y, which is the same as 8x. You want 12x. since 12 = (3/2)*8, 12x = (3/2)*8x. 12x = (3/2)(8x) = (3/2)(5y) …
