How do you solve #4 + 5(3 - x) = 4(8 + 2x)#?

1 Answer

Answer:

#x = -1#

Explanation:

#4 + 5(3 − x) = 4(8 + 2x)#

Distribute #5# and #4# to make the equation in its expanded form

#4 + 15 - 5x = 32 + 8x#

Joining common factors or alike integers for each side:

#13x = -13#

Simplify by dividing both sides with #13#

#x = -1#
