Answer

$x=3$

Work Step by Step

$4x+14=6x+8$ Step 1: is not needed since there are no fractions. Step 2: is not needed since there are no parentheses. Step 3: is not needed. Step 4: the equation is linear. Step 5: $4x+14-14=6x+8-14$ (Add -14 to both sides) $4x-6x=6x-6-6x$ (Add -6x to both sides) $-2x=-6$ Step 6: $\frac{-2x}{-2}=\frac{-6}{-2}$ Divide both sides by -2. $x=3$ Final Step: check: $4\times3+14=6\times3+8=26$
