Criteria for getting brainliest and not getting reported:
– And make sure not to post random answers points are taken away when you are reported so don’t think about answering it if you want only just want points to move up.
– PLEASE provide work or explanation if you can’t provide work. You don’t have to do both if you did already.

1. Solve and identify the solution. 2(x + 5) = 2x + 5

0

1. Simplify:

2(x + 5) = 2x + 5

Reorder the terms:

2(5 + x) = 2x + 5

(5 * 2 + x * 2) = 2x + 5

(10 + 2x) = 2x + 5

Reorder the terms again:

10 + 2x = 5 + 2x

Add -2x to each side of the equation.

10 + 2x + -2x = 5 + 2x + -2x

Combine like terms: 2x + -2x = 0

10 + 0 = 5 + 2x + -2x

10 = 5 + 2x + -2x

Combine like terms:

2x + -2x = 0

10 = 5 + 0

10 = 5
