What is the solution for the equation #6x-8=4x#?
Place both 'x's in one side and all the constants on another side...
You can subtract 4x on both sides of the equation:
You end up with:
Now place all constants on the other side, which is 8 in this case. By adding 8 on both sides:
Finally, divide both sides by 2 to remove the number 2 being multiplied on the x:
Similarly, you could see that 2 of x equals 8, so 1 of x should equal half of that, which is 4.
