# How do you solve 20-4x =8x-4?

Mar 28, 2018

$x = 2$

#### Explanation:

Our goal is to isolate the x, so you can start by adding the 4 to both sides which gives you:

$24 - 4 x = 8 x$

Next, add the 4x to both sides:

$24 = 12 x$

Then just simply divide both sides by 12, giving you your answer:

$x = 2$
