6-26.

Solve for $x$. Check your solutions, if possible. Graph your solutions on a number line.

1. $−2(4−3x)−6x=10$

Distribute the $−2$.

$−8 + 6x − 6x = 10$

Simplify.

$−8=10$

There is no solution to this equation, because $−8\ne10$.

1. $\frac { x - 5 } { - 2 } = \frac { x - 1 } { - 3 }$

Start by multiplying both sides by a common multiple to remove the fractions.
