match them-

a) 2(x+3)-5(x-2)=3 1) x= 13/3
b) 7x+2/2=2x+5/3 2) x=4/17
c) 3(2x+5)-2(4x+3)=5 3) x=2

• maths -

2(x+3)-5(x-2)=3

Get rid of parentheses.

2x + 6 - 5x +10 = 3

Combine terms.

-3x + 16 = 3

Subtract 16 from both sides and then multiply by
-1.

Use a similar process for the other two problems.
