# How do you solve 19= 4( x - 2) - ( x - 6)?

Jun 3, 2018

$x = 7$

#### Explanation:

We can distribute the $4$ and the $- 1$ to their respective terms on the right side. We now have

$4 x - 8 - x + 6 = 19$

We can now combine like terms to get

$3 x - 2 = 19$

Next, we can add $2$ to both sides to get

$3 x = 21$

Lastly, dividing both sides by $3$, we get

$x = 7$

Hope this helps!
