If someone could please break down this linear math equation I could probably
figure the rest out.? 5x  (2x  10) = 35a)2/3b)25/3c)24d)3Any help in explaining how I solve the equation and most importantly why I use that method would be very appreciated.Thank YouI understand the concept of getting all of the variables to one side. but thats a negative 10. It is my understanding that to get rid of it I perform the oposite operation. In my mind I should try to cancel the 10 by adding a positve 10 to the negative 10 and adding the same positive 10 to the other side of the problem which makes that 35 a 45. I believe you are all correct. Through a process of elimination I see it's the right answer, but can someone explain how the 35 became a 25...what happened to that 10? Why are we able to use it as it is and not cancel it out the traditional way? Thank You All AgainThank you so much Jo...I think I see what i did wrong. That negative sign changes all the signs that come after it, so right from the begining it was a positive10 and not a negative. Thank You Again!
