When I was an undergrad, I often would "Assignment Help" myself by giving myself as little time as possible to finish assignments and still get an A. I didn't brag about it, but I did feel an unfortunate amount of internal pride about it.

Hi there! To solve for x, you first need to multiply everything that is in brackets, in this case -3(x+5). The equation will then look like this: 9x -3x -15 = 5x + 9 + 3x. You can then solve for x by bringing all the x variables to one side, which would leave you with: -2x = 24. I hope this helps.
