:salam2: this is what i got [-2x+2]-3=-3 [-2x+2]=-3+3 [-2x+2]=0 since [-2x+2] is 0 that implies x=0 or -2x+2=0 give me hints if it's not correct

:salam2: The cost of a certain kind of candy varies directly with the weight of the candy.If 12 ounces of the candy cost $1.68,how much will 16 ounces cost?

:salam2: 5(-3x - 2) - (x - 3) = -4(4x + 5) + 13 -15x-10-x+3=-16x-20+13 -15x-x+16x=-20+7+13 -16x+16x=-20+20 0x=0 which is undefined there is no solution for this

The answer is correct But, There is a mistake because you got 20 and it should be 7. One the left side when you took -10+3 this give you -7 then when you move it over to the right side it will become 7 and then looking at the right side when you took -20+13 that will give you -7 so -7+7=0 it should be written -16x+16x=-7+7 0=0 or -16x-7=-16x-7 0=0 Ok your turn!
