solve: -6 (5c + 4) - 3 = -2
So we have to use the distributive property first, and distribute the number into the parenthesis.
So, we multiply -6, the outside number, by every inside term: -6*5c + -6*4 -3 = -2
This simplifies to -30c-24-3=-2, or -30c-27=-2
We add both sides by 27: -30c=25
We then divide both sides by -30, making c=-25/30=-5/6
So, assuming you are solving for c, the answer would actually be c = -5/6.
Hope this helps!
