Can someone please walk me through this? i don't want the answer..........just a walk through. Quiz tommorrow.
2 + 5(9x - 6) = 14

  • Math -

    2 + 5(9x - 6) = 14

    First, multiply the quantity in parentheses.

    2 + 45x - 30 = 14

    Move the known quantities to one side of the equation.

    45x = 14 + 28

    45x = 42
    x = 42/45

  • Math -

    i Just get confused on what to do in the parentheses. Their confusing. Do you just distribute them and then add or subtract them?
