Someone please help me go thru these steps to get the answer... (answer is x=37/9)
42(x-5)+x=-29-2(x-2)
42x - 210 +x = -29 -2x +4 [multiply the number in parentheses by each number inside the parentheses)
43x -210 = -2x -25 [combine numbers with numbers and x's with x's]
43x + 2x = -25 + 210 [move x's to one side and numbers to the other side of the equals sign]
45x = 185 [combine like terms again]
x = 185/45 = 37/9 [divide both sides by the coefficient and then simplify]
