Solve for x in each equation below. Homework Help ✎
2x = 8
2x + 2 = 10
6x + 2 − 4x = 10
2(3x + 1) − 4x = 10
Check your solutions for the equations above. What do you notice?

Combine like terms on the left side of the equation. Then see part (b).
Subtract 2 from both sides. Then see part (a).
Distribute the 2. Then see part (c).
All of your answers should be the same.
