Here's another one:

Let's try one:

Solve    5x - 3 + 6x + 1 = 5 - 2 ( x + 4 )

Clean up both sides...

11x - 2 = 5 - 2x - 8   which gives   11x + 2x - 2 = - 2x + 2x - 3   which gives   13x = -1   ditch the 13...   13x/13 = -1/13   which gives  x = -1/13


TRY IT:

Solve        3 - ( 2x + 5 ) = 5 + x + 2 ( 4x - 6 )
