    don’t trip just use the distributive property. -5(3x-2)= -50 which would end up being -15x -7 = -50; then add 7 to both -7 which then they will cancel out and add 7 to -50 which equal -43 so x = -43

    Answer:

    x = 4

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Okay so for this equation we have this:

    -5(3x – 2)= – 50

    because the 3x and -2 are in a parentheses that shows we have to multiply -5 we do like this:

    (3x(-5) – 2(-5)) = -50

    -15x + 10 = -50

    Since we want to get rid of the 10 we are going to subtract 10 from both sides:

    -15x + 10 = -50

           – 10    -10

    Since we are actually going to add -10 to -50 its going to look more like this:

    -15x = -60

    Now we are going to divide -15 from -15x and -60 in order to segregate -15 from x:

    -15x/-15 = -60/-15

    x = 4

    Now we double check our work by placing 4 where x once was:

    -5(3(4) – 2)= – 50

    -5(12 – 2) = -50

    -60 + 10 = -50

    -50 = -50

    Hope this helps
