9(x – 2) = 5(2 + x)

9x - 18 = 10 + 5x;

9x - 5x = 10 + 18;

4x = 28;

x = 28/4;

x = 7

9x - 18 = 10 + 5x;

9x - 5x = 10 + 18;

4x = 28;

x = 28/4;

x = 7

4w + 10 = 116 is the equation you would use to solve the problem below.

If the width is w , length is w + 5

(w+w+5)*2 = 116

4w + 10= 116

If the width is w , length is w + 5

(w+w+5)*2 = 116

4w + 10= 116

–9(2x – 5)

= -9*2x + (-9)*(-5)

= - 18x + 45

= -9*2x + (-9)*(-5)

= - 18x + 45
