2a+5b isn't possible the answer is still 2a+5b.
Collect like terms: 11c+6d-5c-8d = 6c-2d
What is the solution of -2a plus 3a plus 5b
4c/15+5c/6 8c/30+25c/30 33c/30
You can't just solve one side of the equation. You always have to have both sides of the equal sign in order to manipulate the terms. If you have an equation like 10a + 5b=…0, you can now solve for one of the terms (a or b), for example, b=10a/5 and a=-5b/10. Once you have solved for one term, you can plug it back into the equation and solve for real values. In this particular equation, a=-1/2b so by putting any value in for b (say 2), you get a definite value for a (-1) but there are an infinite number of such values.
How do you Expand and simplify 3 openbracket 7a-5b closebracket plus 2 open bracket 4a-3b close bracket?
3(7a - 5b) + 2(4a - 3b) Multiply the contents of each bracket by the number outside it: 21a - 15b + 8a - 6b Bring like terms together: 21a + 8a - 15b - 6b Combine like terms: …29a - 21b This cannot be simplified further.

No unfortunately this is not an equation. An equation must end with an equals sign. 5b + 14 is simply two terms.
It is: 5(a+b)
5b + 5b = 2 x 5b
It is; 5(b+3)
