User: Can you Solve for x? 5(x - 3) + 4(x + 3) = 3(x - 1)

Weegy: 5(x - 3) + 4(x + 3) = 3(x - 1)

5x - 15 + 4x + 12 = 3x - 3;

5x + 4x - 3x = -3 - 12 + 15;

6x = 0;

x = 0


User: Can you Solve for x? 5(x + 1) = 4(x + 8)

5(x + 1) = 4(x + 8)
5x + 5 = 4x + 32
5x - 4x = 32 - 5
x = 27

6 - (3x + 10) + 4(2 - x) = 15;
(-3x - 4) + (8 - 4x) = 15;
-7x + 4 = 15;
-7x = 15 - 4;
-7x = 11;
x = -11/7

5x + 2(x - 3) = -2(x - 1)
5x + 2x - 6 = -2x + 2
7x - 6 = -2x + 2
7x + 2x = 2 + 6
9x = 8
x = 8/9
