Perform the multiplication indicated by the lefthand member. Arrange the result into decreasing order of the variable, x. You will look at coefficients of terms in corresponding positions to find A and B.

Hi. this is what i tried

x - 4Ax = -Bx

and

-2A = 10

found a:

A = -5

then plugged it in:

x - 4(-5)x = -Bx

x + 20x = -Bx

pulled out the x because they all have it:

x + 20x = -Bx

1 + 20 = -B

-B = 21

B = -21

-21 * -5 = 105

The answer is 105?

x - 4Ax = -Bx

and

-2A = 10

found a:

A = -5

then plugged it in:

x - 4(-5)x = -Bx

x + 20x = -Bx

pulled out the x because they all have it:

x + 20x = -Bx

1 + 20 = -B

-B = 21

B = -21

-21 * -5 = 105

The answer is 105?
