Maybe expand these brackets and group some like terms to solve.

Here's a kick start...

Or if you only need to know if 4 is a solution then substitute it into both LHS and RHS of the equation. Do you get the same result? - Sep 15th 2010, 02:36 PMskeeter
multiply both sides of the equation by 8 to clear the fractions ...

take it from there? ...
