Chapter 2 - Section 2.1 - Linear Equations in One Variable - Exercise Set: 20

Answer

$x=-10$

Work Step by Step

We are given that $6x=4(x-5)$. In order to solve for x, we can first use the distributive property to simplify the right side. $6x=4\times(x-5)=4x-20$ Subtract 4x from both sides. $2x=-20$ Divide both sides by 2. $x=-10$
