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?
