# How do you solve w+ 6= 2( w - 6)?

Mar 28, 2018

w = 18

#### Explanation:

$w + 6 = 2 \left(w - 6\right)$

On the right side of the equation, begin with distributing the 2 into w and -6.

$w + 6 = 2 w - 12$

Next, add the 12 from the right side to the 6 on the left side of the equation.

$w + 18 = 2 w$

Finally, subtract the w from the left side to the right.

$18 = w$

Or,

$w = 18$
