  1. Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    3(x + 1 ) =2x – 5                           This is the way the equation reads. Remove the brackets.

    3x + 3 = 2x – 5                            Subtract 2x from both sides

    -2x         -2x

    x + 3 = – 5                                   Subtract 3 from both sides.

       -3      -3

    x = – 8
