Solve the equation. x + 5 ( 3 x − 20 ) = 10 ( x − 4 )

To determine

To solve: The equation x+5(3x20)=10(x4) .

Explanation

Given information: x+5(3x20)=10(x4)

Calculation:

x+5(3x20)=10(x4)

By distributive property, remove the parenthesis.

x+5×3x5×20=10x10×4x+15x100=10x40

Combine like terms.

16x100=10x40

By subtractive property, subtract both sides by 10x
