    Answer:

    x = -1

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Step 1:  Distribute

    -5(x + 2) = -(-5x + 1) – x

    -5x – 10 = 5x – 1 – x

    -5x – 10 = 4x – 1

    Step 2:  Solve for x

    -5x – 10 + 5x = 4x – 1 + 5x

    -10 + 1 = 9x – 1 + 1

    -9 / 9 = 9x / 9

    -1 = x

    Answer:  x = -1
