Let’s simplify the expression:
2x + 3(x – 4) – 5x
First, let’s follow the order of operations (PEMDAS):
 Evaluate the expression inside the parentheses: x – 4 = 4x + 4
So, the original expression becomes: 2x + 3(4x + 4) – 5x
 Simplify the expression by combining like terms: 2x – 12x + 12 – 5x Combine like terms: 11x + 12
So, the simplified expression is: 11x + 12
