6-43.

Solve each equation for x. Homework Help ✎

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

  • One way to start is by multiplying.

    Simplify by adding 4x to each side.

    Simplify again by adding 8 to both sides.

    Divide both sides by 8.

    10 − 4x − 2 = 4x − 8

    8 = 8x − 8

    16 = 8x

    x = 2

  • Remember to distribute the negative.

x = 4
