Chapter 3 - Section 3.2 - Solving Equations: Review of the Addition and Multiplication Properties - Exercise Set: 110

$x=-15$

Work Step by Step

$4(x-11)+|90|-|-86|+25=5x\rightarrow$ resolve absolute values $4(x-11)+90-86+25=5x\rightarrow$ apply distributive property $4x-44+90-86+25=5x\rightarrow$ simplify $4x-15=5x\rightarrow$ subtract 4x from each side $4x-15-4x=5x-4x\rightarrow$ simplify $-15=x$
