6-99.

Solve each equation for $x$. Graph your solution on a number line.

1. $10-2(2x+1)=4(x-2)$

One way to start is by multiplying.

$10-4x-2=4x-8$

Simplify by adding $4x$ to each side.

$8=8x-8$

Simplify again by adding $8$ to both sides.

$16 = 8x$

Divide both sides by $8$.

$x = 2$

1. $5-(2x-3)=-8+2x$

Remember to distribute the negative.

$x = 4$
