User: Simplify the given equation. 5x + 2(x - 3) = -2(x - 1) 7x - 6 = -2x - 2 7x - 6 = -2x + 2 7x - 3 = -2x - 1

Weegy: 5x + 2(x - 3) = -2(x - 1)
5x + 2x - 6 = -2x + 2
7x - 6 = -2x + 2 which is the simplified form.


User: Simplify the given equation. 6 - (3x + 10) + 4(2 - x) = 15 4 - 7x = 15 4 - 4x = 15 12 - 7x = 15

User: 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

7(x + 2) = 6(x + 5)

7x + 14 = 6x + 30;

7x - 6x = 30 - 14;

x = 16

8(x + 1) - 3(x + 4) = 7(2 - x);
8x + 8 - 3x - 12 = 14 - 7x;
5x - 4 = 14 - 7x;
5x + 7x = 14 + 4;
12x = 18;
x = 18/12;
x = 3/2
