    Answer:   x=-3

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Anne’s error is that she only multiplies 5 and 2x on the left side, she needs to multiply 5 and 2x, and also that she needs to multiply 5 and -3.

    5(2x−3)=20x+15

    5(2x) + 5(-3) = 20x + 15

    10x – 15 = 20x + 15

    -10x – 15 = 15

    -10x = 30

    x = -3
