    To solve for x in the equation:2(x + 5) – 3 = 4(x + 2) – 7We will follow these steps:

    1. Distribute the coefficients on both sides
    2. Combine like terms on each side
    3. Subtract the terms with x from both sides to isolate x
    4. Divide both sides by the coefficient of x to find the value of x

    Step 1: Distribute the coefficients on both sides

    2(x + 5) – 3 = 4(x + 2) – 72x + 10 – 3 = 4x + 8 – 7

    Step 2: Combine like terms on each side

    2x + 7 = 4x + 1

    Step 3: Subtract the terms with x from both sides to isolate x

    2x + 7 = 4x + 1-2x -2x -x = 1

    Step 4: Divide both sides by the coefficient of x to find the value of x-x = 1

    x = -1

    Therefore, the value of x that satisfies the equation 2(x + 5) – 3 = 4(x + 2) – 7 is x = -1.
