2/3 (12t - 18) + 2t - 30

40 ( 3/8 * Y - 1/4) + 40 (4/5)

It is also asking me to solve for questions.

2 - (4x + 7) = 3 + 2 (x + 2) ------ I started solving this one by using distributive property after adding 3+2=5 on the right side, making (x + 2) into 5x + 10..?

x/3 + x/4 = -2 ------ This one I started by getting the least common denominator of 3 and 4, which made the equation 4x/12 + 3x/12 = 7x/12 ------ From there it left me with 7x/12 = -2 and from there I am stuck.
