## Algebra: A Combined Approach (4th Edition)

w = $-\frac{6}{5}$
$\frac{3(w + 2)}{4}$ = 2w + 3 Distribute: $\frac{3w + 6}{4}$ = 2w + 3 Multiply both sides by 4: 3w + 6 = 4(2w + 3) 3w + 6 = 8w + 12 Subtract 6 from both sides: 3w = 8w + 6 Subtract 8w from both sides: -5w = 6 Divide both sides by -5: w = $-\frac{6}{5}$
