Not sure how the problem is set up as I see a space between the minus sign and the 12 but not between the minus and the 2. But, using the numbers as written: To solve for b, you must form an equation (-5b -12 -2 = 0). Next you must separate the known numbers from the unknown by adding the sum of the knowns to both sides of the equation (-5b = 14). Then divide both sides of the equation by -5 to find the value of b (b = -2.8). No no no no no. It is -5b-14 because the -5b has no relation to the others so it stays as it is and then -12-2=-14 thus getting -5b-12-2=-5b-14. Cool.

2 [x - B] = 5B + 3Perform the indicated multiplication on the left side:2x - 2B = 5B + 3Add 2B to each side of the equation:2x = 7B + 3Divide each side by 2 :x = 7/2 B + 3/2

It is: (-5b+2)(b-1) with the help of the quadratic equation formula

Numerically, if the question looks like this:--(3a + 7b) - 8a - 4b + 2Then the answer is this:--3a - 7b - 8a - 4b + 2= -11a -11b + 2

The question is worded amibiguously. Do you mean 3(7b)-2, or 3(7b-2)? 3(7b) - 2: 2 = 21b 2/21 = b 3(7b -2): 21b - 6 = 0. 21b = 6 b = 6/21 = 2/7.

5b + 5b = 2 x 5b

It is a quadratic expression which can be factored to (7b+9)(8b-7) after dividing all terms by 2
