Which statement below best describes the following. Is the equation 3(2x + 6) = -12 equivalent 6x + 18 = -12?
Yes, the equations are equivalent by the Associative Property of Multiplication
Yes, the equations are equivalent by the Commutative Property of Multiplication
Yes, the equations are equivalent by the Distributive Property of Multiplication
No, the equations are not equivalent

A student solved the equation 2x/5+x/2=9/5 in three steps, as shown
Step 1: 3x/7=9/5
Step 2: 3x=63/5
Step 3: x=21/5
Which statement is an accurate interpretation of the student’s work?
The correct solution is 21/5
The student made an error in Step 1. Only fractions with common denominators can be combined.
The student made an error in Step 3. To divide both sides by 3, the right side should now have a 3 in the denominator.
x ≠ 5 and x ≠ 2 because those values are in the denominator of the fractions.
