User: 3(x + 5) - 2(x + 2) = 20

Weegy: (x + 5)(x - 5)

= x^2 - 5x + 5x - 25;

= x^2 - 25


User: 3(x + 5) - 2(x + 2) = 20

Weegy: 6 = 2(x + 8) - 5x

6 = 2x + 16 - 5x;

6 - 16 = -3x;

-10 = -3x;

x = 10/3


User: solve for x. 3(x + 5) - 2(x + 2) = 20

Weegy: 6 = 2(x + 8) - 5x is equal to: 10/3 or 3 1/3.

3(x + 5) - 2(x + 2) = 20

3x + 15 - 2x - 4 = 20;

3x - 2x = 20 - 15 + 4;

x = 9
