# How do you solve 4x - 12= 2( 2x - 6)?

$x = 0$

#### Explanation:

$4 x - 12 = 2 \left(2 x - 6\right)$

RH side:

Distribute (multiply) the 2 to the values in the parenthesis

$12 x - 12$

Now lets put it all together

$4 x - 12 = 12 x - 12$

Subtract 4 to both sides

$- 12 = 8 x - 12$

$0 = 8 x$
$x = 0$
