# How do you solve 4( 6x - 1) = 7( 3x + 2)?

Distribute and then combine.

#### Explanation:

You would have to distribute the $4$ into $6 x - 1$, making it

$24 x - 4$

Doing the same on the other side, you have

$21 x + 14$

$24 x - 4 = 21 x + 14$
You have to combine like terms by subtracting and adding from each side. If you subtract $21 x$ from each side and add $4$ to each side, you will end up with the equation
$3 x = 18$
Divide both sides by $3$ and you get
$x = 6$
