To solve for x in the equation:2(x + 5) â€“ 3 = 4(x + 2) â€“ 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) â€“ 3 = 4(x + 2) â€“ 72x + 10 â€“ 3 = 4x + 8 â€“ 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) â€“ 3 = 4(x + 2) â€“ 7 is x = -1.
