2(x - 3) - (x - 2) = 5;

(2x - 6) - (x - 2) = 5;

x - 4 = 5;

x = 5 + 4;

x = 9

(2x - 6) - (x - 2) = 5;

x - 4 = 5;

x = 5 + 4;

x = 9

Wouldn't the answer be -3? When you have two negatives like that they become positive and when you bring them to the other side 8 becomes a negative. So -8 +5=-3.

2(x + 2) + 3(x + 4) = 31;

2x + 4 + 3x + 12 = 31;

5x + 16 = 31;

5x = 31 - 16;

5x = 15;

x = 15/5;

x = 3

2x + 4 + 3x + 12 = 31;

5x + 16 = 31;

5x = 31 - 16;

5x = 15;

x = 15/5;

x = 3
