Answer:

#x=7#

Explanation:

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

#12x + 10=94#

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

#12x=84#

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

#x=7#

Answer:

#x=7#

Explanation:

Solve:

#2(6x+5)=94#

Expand.

#(2*6x)+(2*5)=94#

Simplify.

#12x+10=94#

Subtract #10# from both sides of the equation.

#12x+10-10=94-10#

Simplify.

#12x+0=94-10#

#12x=84#

Divide both sides by #12#.

#(12x)/12=84/12#

Simplify.

#x=7#
