Answer

The answer is 4

Work Step by Step

$ 2(x-5) = 2-x $ Distribute the 2 on the left side so you multiply x by 2 and -5 by 2 $ 2x-10 = 2-x $ Collecting like terms on the same side (move the x variable on left side and constant on right side) $ 2x+x = 2+10 $ Combine like terms $ 3x = 12 $ Isolate x by dividing 3 from both sides $ \frac{3x }{3}= \frac{12}{3} $ Simplify x= 4 Therefore the solution is 4
