- ok... we keep getting this one wrong:

Solve the following equation for x. Write your answer as a fraction in simplest form.

-6(x-5)=-2x-8-6(3x-5)

Ive been doing that but i keep getting the wrong answer

What answer have you been getting?

a lot of different ones, like 19/7

I get -4/7 but I didn't check my work. Post your work and I'll check it and find the error.

- we just got -4/7

Check it to make sure it is right.

ok - thanks- i think we were just adding all wrong

yeah- it was- Thanks!
