# How do you solve 15+5(x-2)=7w+4?

Oct 2, 2016

$x = \frac{7 w}{5} - 0.2$

#### Explanation:

Expand the brackets

$15 + 5 x - 10 = 7 w + 4$

$5 x + 5 = 7 w + 4$

Divide both sides by $5$

$x + 1 = \frac{7 w}{5} + \frac{4}{5}$

$x + 1 = \frac{7 w}{5} + 0.8$

Take $5$ from both sides

$x = \frac{7 w}{5} - 0.2$
