-2(bx-5)=16 what is the value of x in terms of b and what is the value of x when b is 3?


Answer 1
Answer: Answer= -54


If b is 3, then it changes to -2(3x-5)=16

We want to find x, right? Then we must do -2•3x and -2(-5). The result would be -6x and 10.

Then again, the equation would change -6x+10=16
Which would be -6x=6
Is x=6/6

And then x would be 1
