Question #6261a

Nov 29, 2016

The answer is c) - 52.

Explanation:

First, expand the terms in parenthesis:

$- 4 x - 40 - 6 = - 3 x + 6$

$- 4 x - 46 = - 3 x + 6$

Next move the terms for $x$ onto one side of the equation and the constants onto the other side of the equation using the necessary mathematics while keeping the equation balanced:

$- 4 x - 46 + 4 x - 6 = - 3 x + 6 + 4 x - 6$

$- 52 = x$
