5x + 3(x - 5) = 6x + 2x - 15 5x + 3x - 15 = 8x - 15 8x - 8x = -15 + 15 0 = 0 Since, both sides are equal, this equation is true for all x. Part B: One property used is distributive property.  The Distributive Property is an algebra property which is used to multiply a single term and two or more terms inside a set of parentheses.
