  • Answer:

    x = -7

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Eleven more than five times a number is equal to the difference between −38 and twice the number.

    let x represent the number.

    11 + 5x = -38 - 2x

    7x +11 = -38.............add 2x to both sides

    7x = -49................... subtract 11 from both sides

    x = -7........................divide both sides by 7
