2. Solve the equation for the value of x 7(3x+6) – 4(3+5x) = 13 + x Answer x =_ 7(3x + 6) - 4(3 + 5x) = 13 + x; distribute the 7 and the -4 21x + 42 - 12 - 20x = 13 + x combine like terms x + 30 = 13 + x subtract x from each side x - x + 30 = 13 + x - x 30 = 13 no solution Section 3.4 Translating sentences into equations 1.
