How do you solve #-6= 6( x - 8)#? Algebra Linear Equations Multi-Step Equations with Like Terms 1 Answer Mattchuk · Stefan V. May 30, 2018 #x=7# Explanation: #-6=6(x-8)# #-6=6x-48# #48-6=6x# #42/6=(6x)/6# #7=x# You use distributive property on the brackets to get #6x-48#. Then you add #48# to both sides so you isolate for #x#. Then you subtract #48# and #6# so you get #42#. You then divide both sides by #6# so #x# is completely isolated.
