If I wrote my answer as mixed numbers I'd get:
(-3 4/5)x - 9 3/5
but that is the same answer. If you'll
put the other person's work up here
I can check it.

Is that person meowwithme123?
They put
1/5(x + 2) = (1/5)x + 2
but it should be
(1/5)x + 2/5.
Report as
I mean
they put (1/5)x + 1
And it should be
(1/5)x + 2/5

That's wrong. You put
1/5(x + 2) = (1/5)x + 1
but it's equal to (1/5)x + 2/5.
