The answer is -3

First, transform the sentence into an equation, and let x be the missing number:

12 = 3x - (5x -6)

12 = 3x -5x + 6

12-6 = 3x - 5x

6 = -2x

x = -3

(5x X)-6

Step-by-step explanation:

+6 +6

5x=35

/5 /5

x=7

44

Step-by-step explanation-

Jack has 6 less than 5 times what mark has, if we write it out, we have (5*mark)-6. We know that mark has 10, so if we replace it we have

(5*10)-6 we get 50-6 which equals 44
