first you distribute. so, 2(x - 5) = - 11 so since you distributed it would be, 2x - 10 = -11  then you add 10 to both sides, so now its 2x=-1 now we divide, [latex] \frac{2x}{2} [/latex] = [latex] \frac{-1}{2} [/latex] so now you get : x = -0.5 ------------------------------------------------------- Lets check.  2(-0.5 - 5) = -11 so first we distribute,  -1 - 10 = -11 does -1 - 10 = -11?? Yup!! So x= -0.5 is your answer, i hope i helped! :D

X= -1/2 IS THE ANSWER FOR THE QUESTION SO OTHERS I GUESS HAVE ANSWERD CORRECTLY IT CAN ALSO BE -0.5
