HELP, PLEASE! FAN and MEDAL [01.01] Given the equation 5x − 4 = –2(3x + 2), solve for the variable. Explain each step and justify your process. Megan solved a similar equation below. Is Megan's solution correct? Explain why or why not. 3(2x − 4) = 5x − 1 6x − 12 = 5x − 1 11x − 12 = –1 11x = 11 x = 11
