How would you solve this problem 3x+2(5x+4)=47?

Report as

First you do 2 times 5x+4, so the equation is 3x+10x+8=47. Then you add 3x and 10x, making the equation 13x+8=47. Then you subtract 8 from both sides, which makes it 13x=39. Then you divide by 13, making it x=3. I did this in my head and I'm only in sixth grade!

3x+2(5x+4)=47 multiply (5x+4) by 2
3x+10x+8=47 keep multiples of x on one side and the whole numbers on the other
13x=39 divide both sides by 13
x=3

Distribute the 2, then put like terms together. 13x=39. Now divide by 13 on both sides. And u get x=3
Goodluck

3x+2(5x+4)=47. Do the parentheses first. Then the 3x+2. Multiply your two answers to ensure your answer is 47

You can't do the parenthesis first bc there is a variable, you need to destribute first.
