If some one could give me step by step (and even better comment why) for my couple problems that would be pretty sweet. First one is: 5x + (7x + 2) = 3(2x + 4) - (2x + 2) im pretty blocked here... i know i should first open the () first, if its 3(2x plus 4) its: 3x2 plus 3x4 = 6 plus 12 = 18? or im lost right away? lol and if its -( then opened by turning numbers upside down? Second: Lets say if year 1995 population ZumbaZumba is 19% was under 15years old. Year 2005 population under 15 was 17,3%. How big % chance it was? How to solve this? and again step by step would be nice with small comments
