7-66.

Solve each of the following equations. Be sure to show your work and check your answers. Homework Help ✎

2(3

*x*− 4) = 226(2

*x*− 5) = −(*x*+ 4)2 − (

*y*+ 2) = 3*y*3 + 4(

*x*+ 1) = 159

Distribute, then simplify.

6*x* − 8 = 22

6*x* = 30

*x* = 5

Begin this problem by distributing the 6 and the negative that are outside of the parentheses, then simplify by isolating the variable onto one side of the equation.

*x* = 2

Use the same methods outlined in parts (a) and (b).
