5x + 3(x - 2) = -2(x + 1)

5x + 3x - 6 = -2x - 2

8x - 6 = -2x - 2

8x + 2x = -2 + 6

10x = 4

x = 4/10

x = 2/5

5x + 3x - 6 = -2x - 2

8x - 6 = -2x - 2

8x + 2x = -2 + 6

10x = 4

x = 4/10

x = 2/5

8 + 2^2 (-3 + 9) ÷ 3

= 8 + 4(6) ÷ 3

= 8 + 24 ÷ 3

= 8 + 8

= 16

= 8 + 4(6) ÷ 3

= 8 + 24 ÷ 3

= 8 + 8

= 16

Two consecutive even integers whose sum is 86:

x+x+2=86

2x+2=86

2x=86-2

2x=84

x=84/2

x=42

x+2=44

The two consecutive even integers whose sum is 86 are 42 and 44.

x+x+2=86

2x+2=86

2x=86-2

2x=84

x=84/2

x=42

x+2=44

The two consecutive even integers whose sum is 86 are 42 and 44.
