-3x-2(5x-7)=-12
I need to solve for x,
please help!!
and show me how you did it if possible!

  • math -

    -3x-2(5x-7)=-12

    Get rid of parenthesis.

    -3x-10x+14=-12

    Combine terms. Subtract 14 from both sides.

    -13x = -26

    You should be able to solve it from here.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
