# How do you solve 2( x + 5) - 2= 6x - 4( - 3+ x )?

Mar 9, 2018

There is no solution.

#### Explanation:

parentheses first
distribute into parentheses
$2 x + 10 - 2 = 6 x + 12 - 4 x$
combine like terms
$2 x + 8 = 2 x + 12$
subtract 8 from 12
$2 x = 2 x + 4$
subtract 2x
$0 = 4$ that does not mean anything, meaing that this equation is false and x cannnot be solved for.
