4-17.

Determine if the statement below is always, sometimes, or never true. Justify your conclusion.

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

Simplify both sides as much as possible and see if they are equal to each other.

The sides are not equal, but when you solve the equation, $x=0$. Since there is only one
possible $x$ value, the statement is only sometimes true.
