Simplify by removing parentheses Simplify -9(x - 4): Distribute the -9 to each term in (x-4) -9 * x = (-9 * 1)x = -9x -9 * -4 = (-9 * -4) = 36 Our Total expanded term is -9x + 36

Our new term is 2x - 9x + 36 = 10

Simplify by removing parentheses Our new term is 2x - 9x + 36 = 10

Group the x terms on the left:

(2 - 9)x = -7x

Form modified equation

-7x + 36 = + 10

Group constants

Group our constants 36 and 10. subtract 36 from both sides -7x + 36 - 36 = 10 - 36

Cancel 36 on the left side:

-7x = -26

Divide each side of the equation by -7

-7x

-7

=

-26

-7

x = 3.7142857142857
