# 2( 6x + 5 ) = 94?

Mar 13, 2018

$x = 7$

#### Explanation:

What you have to do is to use the distributive property where you multiply $2 \times 6 x$ and $2 \times 5$. After that, you should get

$12 x + 10 = 94$

Next, you are going to subtract the $10$ over to the other side. After that, you would have

$12 x = 84$

Next, divide both sides by $12$ to get $x$ by itself and then you have

$x = 7$

$x = 7$

#### Explanation:

Solve:

$2 \left(6 x + 5\right) = 94$

Expand.

$\left(2 \cdot 6 x\right) + \left(2 \cdot 5\right) = 94$

Simplify.

$12 x + 10 = 94$

Subtract $10$ from both sides of the equation.

$12 x + 10 - 10 = 94 - 10$

Simplify.

$12 x + 0 = 94 - 10$

$12 x = 84$

Divide both sides by $12$.

$\frac{12 x}{12} = \frac{84}{12}$

Simplify.

$x = 7$
