20x -10 = 6+12x
Maths was never my best subject!
Thanks!
20x -10 = 6+12x
You have to solve for x, so you need to isolate x, to do that, you can subtract 12x from both sides: $\displaystyle 20x-10-12x =6+12x-12x$ and you will get -> $\displaystyle 8x-10=6$, now add 10 to both sides and you get rid of that -10 on the left side and you will have -> $\displaystyle 8x=6+10=16$, now you have 8x=16, you can divide both sides by 8 to get rid of that 8 next to x and you will get -> $\displaystyle x=\frac{16}{8}$ -> $\displaystyle x=2$.
