Answer:

x = -11

Step-by-step explanation:

1. Distribute 3 to the parenthesis and distribute 5 to the parenthesis

3x-12 = 5x + 10

2. Combine like terms (subtract 3x on both sides and then subtract 10 on both sides)

2x = -22

3. Divide both sides by 2

x = -11

Answer:

x=−11

Step-by-step explanation:

3(x-4)=5(x+2)

Simplify both sides of the equation:

3(x−4)=5(x+2)

(3)(x)+(3)(−4)=(5)(x)+(5)(2)(Distribute)

3x−12=5x+10

Subtract 5x from both sides

−2x−12=10

add 12 to both sides

−2x=22

Divide by -2 both sides

x=−11

Hope this helps.
