Question:

Solve the following equation for x, show all work and describe each step. 5(-3x - 2) - (x - 3) = - 4(4x + 5) + 13

Kim C.

5(-3x - 2) - (x - 3) = - 4(4x + 5) + 13 1. Multiple the constants with the expression inside of the parentheses. 5(-3x - 2) => -15x - 10 - (x - 3) => - x + 3 - 4(4x + 5) => -16x - 20 2. Rewrite the equation with the results from step 1. -15x - 10 - x + 3 = -16x - 20 + 13 3. Combine like terms (x terms with x terms, constants with constants) on each side of the equation. -15x - x => -16x -10 + 3 => -7 -20 + 13 => -7 4. Rewrite the equations with the results from step 3. -16x - 7 = -16x - 7 5. Move all x terms to one side of the equation. -16x - 7 = -16x - 7 +16x +16x 6. Rewrite the equation with the results from step 5. 0 - 7 = 0 - 7 7. Simplify the equation. -7 = -7 8. What is this solution called? Identity 9. Why? All x values result in the equation being true.
