6-21.

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

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

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

6 + 10*x* ≠ 6 + 5*x*.

So, it is not true for all values of *x*. But is there any value of *x* that makes the statement true?

Yes, The statement is sometimes true since *x* = 0 makes the statement true.
