Solve these fraction equations:
2/3 - 8/9 = c/6
z/3 + 1 = z/2 - 3

Use the distributive property to simplify.
1. -5(a + 2)

• Algebra/Distributive Properties -

multiply the 1st by 18 , the LCM
12 - 16 = 3c
-4 = 3c
c = -4/3

2nd, multiply by 6
2z + 6 = 3z - 18
-z = -24
z = 24

-5(a+2) = -5a - 10

• Algebra/Distributive Properties -

How did you get 3c?
