How do you solve #-5( n + 12) = 5( - 4n - 10) + 5#?

1 Answer

Answer:

First of all, you need to expand in order to remove the brackets.

Explanation:

#-5(n+12)=5(-4n-10) + 5#

which equals

#-5n-60=-20n-50+5#

Then, you collect the like terms:

#-5n+20n=-50+5+60#

then you get

#15n=15#

You divide both sides by #15# and the final answer will be

#n=1#
