How do you solve #3/2 (x+8)=6x#?
Use the distributive property to solve.
The distributive property states that you must multiply the number outside parentheses with each number encompassed within the parentheses.
Example: Simplify 2(x + 4)
= 2x + 8, since we multiplied the 2 with the x and the 2 with the 4
Now let's get to the equation:
First use the distributive property to simplify:
Put the x's together and the non-x's together
-9x = -24
So, the solution is x =
