nicoleeeeeee123So you’d distribute first, then combine like terms. After you’ve done that you’d do the inverse to isolate x

LouliAnswer: x = -31 Explanation: To solve for x, you will need to isolate the x on one side of the equation. This can be done as follows: 5(x-4) + 2 = -173 5x - 20 + 2 = -173 5x - 18 = -173 5x = -173 + 18 5x = -155 5x/5 = -155/5 x = -31 Hope this helps :)
