6x+4(8-x)=22
6x+32-4x=22
6x-4x=22-32
2x divided by 2 = -10 divided by 2
x= -5
I tried verifying it like this
6x-5+4(8-5)
but I don't end up with what it equals please help.
you verify by replacing ALL the x's with -5 and show that the equation makes sense. thus, when you replace ALL the x's on the left hand side of the equation, you want to get 22
