Answer

a = 17

Work Step by Step

6(a - 5) = 4a + 4 Simplify by distributing the factor 6 into both terms in the parentheses on the left side. 6a - 30 = 4a + 4 Subtract 4a from both sides. 6a - 30 - 4a = 4a + 4 - 4a Simplify. 2a - 30 = 4 Add 30 to both sides. 2a = 34 Divide both sides by 2. a = 17
