Q:
# Solve the linear equation. 8x+32=2(25x−15)−11x8x+32=2(25x−15)−11x

Accepted Solution

A:

It seems like you put the same equation up there twice, but no worries! :)

8x + 32 = 2(25x - 15) - 11x

Simplify.

8x + 32 = 50x - 30 - 11x

Add like terms.

8x + 32 = (50x - 11x) - 30

Simplify.

8x + 32 = 39x - 30

Now we must subtract 32 from both sides.

8x = 39x - 30 - 32

Then, subtract 39x from both sides.

8x - 39x = -30 - 32

Simplify.

-31x = -62

Finally, divide both sides by -31.

-31x ÷ -31 = -62 ÷ -31

Simplify.

x = 2
