first question
7(2x-3)+3=24

second question

5+3x=7(x+3)

third question

3(8-6n)=41

2. Just multiply out & solve for x or n.

3. thnx but didnt really help

$7(2x - 3) + 3 = 24$

$7(2x - 3) + 3 - 3 = 24 - 3$

$7(2x - 3) = 21$

$\frac{1}{7} \cdot 7(2x - 3) = \frac{1}{7} \cdot 21$

$2x - 3 = 3$

$2x - 3 + 3 = 3 + 3$

$2x = 6$

$\frac{1}{2} \cdot 2x = \frac{1}{2} \cdot 6$

$x = 3$

Try the other ones. They are very similar in principle.
