#1**+10 **

Order of operations:

1. Solve what's inside the paranthesis

2. Multiply (*) / divide (:)

3. Add (+) / subtract (-)

3x + 2(x + 7) - 5 = 4(x + 3) - 3(x + 1)

3x + 2x +14 - 5 = 4x + 12 - 3x - 3

5x + 9 = x + 9 You'd typically like to have the x'es on the lift side

Move the x to the left, and the nine on the left side over to the right side

4x = 0

x = 0
