If i bought (3x + 5) pencils which cost (5x – 1) pesos each, how much will i pay for it?...

196

Step-by-step explanation:

3x + 5 = 5x - 1

3x - 5x = -1 - 5

-2x = -6

-2x/-2 = -6/-2

x = 3

(pencils)

3x + 5

3(3) + 5

9 + 5

14 (pencils)

(cost for each pencil)

5x - 1

5(3) - 1

15 - 1

14 (for each pencil)

14 x 14 = 196

Step-by-step explanation:

(3x+5)(5x-1)
