# How do you solve #5( x - 2) + x = 6( x - 4)#?

##### 2 Answers

No real solutions

#### Explanation:

distribute the five on the left side and combine like terms and distribute the six on the right side. This yields 6x-10=6x-24 which simplifies to -10=-24 which is not a true statement and therefore there are no real solutions.

This equation has No Solution.

#### Explanation:

First, you must simplify the two sides of the equation by applying the Distributive Property and combining like terms.

Now that both sides of the equation are simplified, use inverse operations to solve the equation.

Because we obtained an untrue statement when we used inverse operations to try to solve the equation for
