Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! Hope your day is going well!

The goal is to get the b by itself.

first step: distribute the -2

-2(b+5)=-6

-2b-10=-6

Step 2: add 10 to both sides

-2b=4

Step 3: divide -2 to both sides

b=-2

To make sure your answer is right, substitute -2 into the original equation

-2(-2+5)

-2(3)=-6

Which is the answer!

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions. Leave a positive review if you are happy!
