# How do you solve 4( 6+ x ) + 2x = 33?

Mar 31, 2018

$x = \frac{3}{2} = 1.5$

#### Explanation:

$4 \left(6 + x\right) + 2 x = 33$

$\implies 24 + 4 x + 2 x = 33$ ------ using distributive property.

$\implies 24 + 6 x = 33$

$\implies 6 x = 33 - 24$ --------- transposition.

$\implies 6 x = 9$

$\implies x = \frac{9}{6} = \frac{3}{2} = 1.5$

$\implies x = 1.5$

$x = 1 \frac{1}{2}$

#### Explanation:

Expand the bracket

$\implies$$24 + 4 x + 2 x = 33$

$\implies$ $24 + 6 x = 33$

$\implies$ $6 x = 9$

$\implies$ $x = \frac{9}{6}$

$\implies$ $x = \frac{3}{2}$
