a. Choose the number 4. What ending number did you get?

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 3b.

Let the number be $x$, then after multiplying by 5 the expression becomes:

$5x$

After adding 2, it becomes

$5x+2$

After multiplying by 3, it becomes:

$3(5x+2)$

After subtracting 8, it becomes:

$3(5x+2)-8$

Simplify this expression, therefore:

$=15x+6-8$

$=15x-2$

The expression simplifies to $15x-2$. This is the ending expression.
