(5x3)+2x=114(x+2)
5x+3+2x=114x8
3x+3=34x
(try to make "x" positive here, so add 4x to both sides of the = sign and subtract 3 from both sides as well. doing this will end you with "x=0" which is the answer. but make sure you check that the solution works in the problem (just substitute 0 for the "x"'s in your original problem to show your work.)
