#### Answer

$x = 30$

#### Work Step by Step

$2x = 60$
Step 1:
is not needed because there is no fractions.
$2x = 60$
Step 2:
is not needed.
$2x = 60$
Step 3:
is not needed since no simplifying can be done on either side of the equation.
$2x = 60$
Step 4:
The equation is linear.
$2x = 60$
Step 5: Get all variable terms on one side and all numbers on the other side by using the addition property of equality.
Already done.
$2x = 60$
Step 6: Get the variable alone by using the multiplication property of equality.
$2x \times \frac{1}{2} = 60 \times \frac{1}{2}$
$x = 30$
Final Step: Check each solution in the original equation.
$2\times30 = 60$
