2(k - 5) + 3k = k + 6

Use the distributive property to simplify and combine like terms.

2k - 10 + 3k = k + 6

Combine like terms.

5k - 10 = k + 6

Then, add 10 to both sides.

5k = 16 + k

Then, subtract k from both sides.

4k = 16

Then, divide both sides by 4

k = 4

CHECK your solution by plugging back into the original equation.
