what is x when:

3x+1368+280x-225=0
283x+1143=0
283x=-1143
x=-1143/283
therefore x= -4.04

Was this set by a teacher, or are you just curious?

3(x+456)+5(56x-45)=0

Multiply out: 3x+3 * 456 + 5 * 56x + 5 *(-45)=0   (i am using * to mean multiply, so it doesn't look like x)

Simplify: 3x + 1368 + 280x -225 = 0
Simplify More: 283x + 1143 = 0

Rearrange (subtract 1143 from both sides): 283x = -1143
Rearrange (divide both sides by 283): x = -1143/283

So, x = -1143/283 = -4.04
