# How do you solve –2(2x – 3) = –6?

Sep 10, 2015

$x = 3$

#### Explanation:

the question:

–2(2x–3)=–6

multiply the "internals" of the parentheses by the -2 to remove the parentheses:

–4x+6=–6

subtract 6 from both sides to remove it from the left:

–4x+6-6=–6-6

the answer so far is:

–4x=–12

divide both sides by $- 4$ to remove it from the $x$:

$- 4 \frac{x}{-} 4 = - \frac{12}{-} 4$

$x = 3$
