# How do you solve -7n - 2( 2- 6n ) = 2( 1+ 2n )?

Oct 25, 2017

$n = 6$

#### Explanation:

First, distribute the parenthesis.
$- 7 n - 2 \left(2 - 6 n\right) = 2 \left(1 + 2 n\right)$
$- 7 n - 4 + 12 n = 2 + 4 n$

Then we want to isolate all the terms with the variable $n$.
$- 7 n + 12 n - 4 n = 2 + 4$

Then we combine-like terms.
$n = 6$
