Work Step by Step
We first use the distributive property to simplify the equation to: $3c-2=4+c$. We subtract by c on both sides to obtain that 2c-2=4. We need to get the c alone, so we cancel out the subtraction by adding 2 on both sides. This leaves us with the equation 2c=6. We use division to cancel out multiplication, so we divide both sides by 2 to get that c=3.
