# How do you solve 2=x+6-2x?

Dec 17, 2016

$x = 4$

#### Explanation:

First, isolate the $x$ terms on one side of the equation and the constants on the other side of the equation while keeping the equation balanced:

$2 - 6 = x + 6 - 2 x - 6$

$- 4 = x - 2 x + 0$

$- 4 = x - 2 x$

$- 4 = - x$

Now we can multiply each side of the equation by $- 1$ to solve for $x$ and keep the equation balanced:

$- 1 \times - 4 = - 1 \times - x$

$4 = x$
