1/2(x+2)+7=3x+(-32)

explained pls

for this case we must apply distributive property to the following expression:

[tex]-2 (2.1x + 3y-0.8)[/tex]

the distributive property states that:

[tex](a + b) (c + d) = ac + ad + bc + bd[/tex]

then, when applying the property we have to multiply the -2 for each term within the parenthesis:

[tex]-4.2x-6y + 1.6[/tex]

[tex]-4.2x-6y + 1.6[/tex]

x is equal to 16

Step-by-step explanation:

Combine multiplied terms into a single fraction

Multiply by 1

Subtract 7 from both sides of the equation

Simplify it

Subtract 3 from both sides of the equation

Simplify

Multiply all terms by the same value to eliminate fraction denominators

Simplify

Subtract 2 from both sides of the equation

Simplify

Divide both sides of the equation by the same term

Simplify!

That's it!

can i know which language is this?
