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

• college algebra -

2x-6/5 - 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.

2/5(5x-3)-1/3(12x-5)
2x-6/5-4x+5/3
-2x-18/15+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!
-2x+1/15(-18+25)
-2x+7/15

Thanks. I see that. You are correct.

2/5(5x-3) - 1/3(12x-5)
10x/5-3/1(5/5) -12x/3 +5/1(3/3)
2x-3 -4x +5
2x-4x - 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?
