2/5(5x3)  1/3(12x5). Have the correct answer but need someone to show me how to solve for it.

2x6/5  4x+5/3
2x +1/15 (6+25)
2x+ 19/15 
Amber, I'm not sure if my solution is correct but I will take a stab at it.
Your problem was:
2/5(5x3)1/3(12x5)
2x6/54x+5/3
2x18/15+25/15
2x+7/15 
You made a mistake bobpursley in solving Amber's problem.
6/5 does NOT equal 6/15! 6/5=18/15 Therefore your calculation in line 2 of your solution is incorrect!
It SHOULD read:
2x+1/15(18+25)
2x+7/15 
Thanks. I see that. You are correct.

2/5(5x3)  1/3(12x5)
10x/53/1(5/5) 12x/3 +5/1(3/3)
2x3 4x +5
2x4x  3+5
2x + 2

5x 3 = 11 + 12x combine like figures add 3 to both sides to remove the 3 5x= 14+ 12x Now I get confused. If I remove the 12x I have to subtract 12x from 5x which gives me an answer of 7x=14 would the correct answer thus be x= 2?
