How do you solve 28x - 16- 16x = 4( 3x - 5) + 4?

You need to open up the bracket $4 \cdot 3 x = 12 x$, and $4 \cdot 5 = 20$, so your equation is $2 x - 16 - 16 x = 12 x - 20 + 4$, to collect like terms it will be $28 x - 16 x - 12 x = 20 + 4 + 16$. Dealing with the $x$ side of the equation will be $28 x - 16 x$ that is equal to $12 x$ then $12 x - 12 x = 0$. Now to the second part $20 + 4 = 24$ and $24 + 16 = 40$
