-2(-5-7)=2(-5)+34
10+14=10+34
here is the mistake...
-2(-5-7) = 2(-5) + 34
10 + 14 = -10 + 34
24 = 24
Hello all,
I am trying to solve for x
However I am confused.
-2(x-7)=2x+34
-2x+14=2x+34
-14 -14
-2x=2x+20
-2x -2x
-4x=20
/-4 /-4
x=-5
However, I try to test this by replacing x with -5
-2(-5-7)=2(-5)+34
10+14=10+34
24=44
So I have the feeling I am doing something wrong.
