I tried using my calculator and punching in the choices to figure out what x is and none of them equaled -10 so idk what i did wrong

Find the value of x that will make the following numerical expression equal to − 10 .
-5^2+(x+2)/-4-(-6)
(a)−1 (b)−3 (c)2 (d)1 (e)3

  • Math -

    (-5^2+(x+2))/-4-(-6) = -10
    (-25 + (x+2))/(-4+6) = -10
    (-25 + (x+2))/2 = -10
    -25 + x + 2 = -20
    -23 + x = -20
    x = -20 + 23
    x = 3
    so, it's letter (E).

    hope this helps~ :)
