# How do you solve 6(2x – 3) = 30?

Mar 15, 2018

$x = 4$

#### Explanation:

Start:

$6 \left(2 x - 3\right) = 30$

Distribute the 6:

$12 x - 18 = 30$

$12 x = 48$

Divide both sides by 12:

$x = 4$

The answer is x = 4

#### Explanation:

First you distribute the 6 to all the terms
inside the parenthesis.
This makes the equation look like this:

$12 x - 18 = 30$

Then you isolate the x variable by shifting
all constants to the other side.
The equation would look like this:

$12 x = 30 + 18$

Now you just simplify the problem and
then divide the variable by the coefficient.

$12 x = 48$

$\frac{12 x}{12} = 48$

$x = 4$
