How do you solve 5( 4x + 2) = 6( 3x + 4)?

Answer 1

$x$ = 7

#### Explanation:

5($4 x$+2) = 6($3 x$+4)

First, multiply out the brackets:

$20 x$ + 10 = $18 x$ + 24

Rearrange the equation to get $x$ on one side and the numbers on the other:

$20 x$ - $18 x$ = 24-10
$2 x$ = 14

Divide by 2 get $x$ on its own:

$x$ = 7
