2(z + 3) = 5 - z

Thank you in advance for your help!
I had to write an aptitude test at the college to see if I needed to take a math course or if I could just write the test. I had as much success as you, and so will have to take the class! never was very good at math, I figured that is why calculators were invented!

I never could understand why they had to include letters into math equations..... Just tell me what you want and then I'll use a ream of paper and a lot of erasers and lead and still not come up with any answer that comes remotely close. Good luck to you and the Algebra.... if you need help in English I'm here to help.....

Yeah, they are good! I can't remember how to do it and I'm learning it now! I just had my first test and I think I did ok but, I know that I missed some. But he said he gives partial credit if the problem is wrong but, you got some of the steps right so that might save me! I know that the beginning of the test I did ok and then in the middle with the fractions and inequalities I was a little shaky and then the thing that I am the worst at I think I got right...word problems! It was 20 questions worth 5 points each. Hopefully I'll do ok on it. I get the results of my biology test and my homework assignments tomorrow. I'm a little worried about those ones. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed! I need all the luck I can get! Thank you to everyone who has and continues to help me. Denise
