Chapter 2 - Test: 2

Answer

-32.

Work Step by Step

Solve this equation: 9(x+2)=5[11-2(2-x)+3] 9(x+2)=5[11-2(2-x)+3] Distribute the 9 and the -2. 9x+18=5[11-2+2x+3] Combine like terms. 9x+18=5[10+2x] Distribute the 5. 9x+18=50+10x Subtract 10x from both sides. -1x+18=50 Subtract 18 from both sides. -1x=32 Divide. x=-32
