6-99.

Solve each equation for

*x*. Graph your solution on a number line. Homework Help ✎10 − 2(2

*x*+ 1) = 4(*x*− 2)5 − (2

*x*− 3) = −8 + 2*x*

Remember to check your answer to make sure it is correct.

One way to start is by multiplying.

10 − 4*x* − 2 = 4*x* − 8

Remember to distribute the negative.

*x* = 4

Simplify by adding 4*x* to each side.

8 = 8*x* − 8

Simplify again by adding 8 to both sides.

16 = 8*x*

Divide both sides by 8.

*x* = 2
