I'm not sure what this problem is asking.

 

The sum of 4 and the product of 5 and x is equal to 5 less than the product of 2 and x. What is the value of x?

I can see why you're confused....this  sentence is  poorly  constructed

 

I  think  it  means  that

 

4  +  5x  =  2x  -  5     rearrange  as

 

5 + 4  =  2x  - 5x

 

9    =  -3x

 

9 / -3  =  x     =  -  3

 

 

cool cool cool
