# Evaluate the expression. 5 - (4 - 2 - (6-6)) 8 2 5 3

Step-by-step explanation:

5−(4−2−(6−6))

=3

3

Step-by-step explanation:

Simplify the following:

5 - (4 - 2 - (6 - 6))

6 - 6 = 0:

5 - (4 - 2 - 0)

-0 = 0:

5 - (4 - 2 + 0)

4 - 2 + 0 = 4 - 2:

5 - 4 - 2

4 - 2 = 2:

5 - 2

5 - 2 = 3:

The sum of 237 and six times the opposite of a number is 405. what is the number? a. -28
b. -24
c. 30
d. 32

The number is 28.

The equation would be:

237 + 6(x) = 405

The problem states that 6 times the opposite of a number, however, since the number sign was not given, we do not know whether it is in a positive or negative form. So we leave it as only x.

237 +  6x = 405
6x = 405 - 237
6x = 168
6x / 6 = 168 / 6
x = 28

To check:

237 + 6 (28) = 405
237 + 168 = 405
405 = 405

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x = the number

237 + (-6x) = 405

237 - 6x = 405

-6x = 168

x = -28
