A-96.

Solve each equation. Record your work and check your answer. Homework Help ✎

The expression for the left side is 1 − 3 − (2*x*). The expression for the right side is −*x* − 3 −(2 + *x*). Simplify each side by flipping tiles from the negative to the positive region and removing zero pairs. Record your work.

2*x* − 2 = −2*x* − 5

4*x* = −3

The simplified expression for the left side is *y* + 2, for the right side is 2*y* + 2
