#### Answer

The equation is a contradiction.

#### Work Step by Step

Distribute through the parenthesis.
$4x+28=2x+24+2x+2$
Add/Subtract like terms.
$4x+28=4x+26$
Subtract $4x$ from each side. Because you were left with 2 unequal constants, no value of $x$ will satisfy the given conditions.
$28=26$
