Jun 8, 2017

$x = \frac{16}{3}$

#### Explanation:

$3 \left(4 x - 15\right) = 19$

Expand the parenthesis on the left side of the equation by multiplying all terms inside of the parenthesis by 3.

$12 x - 45 = 19$

Add 45 to both sides of the equation.

$12 x = 64$

Divide both sides of the equation by 12.

$x = \frac{16}{3}$
