Sovle for x
Hello all,
I am trying to solve for x
However I am confused.
2(x7)=2x+34
2x+14=2x+34
14 14
2x=2x+20
2x 2x
4x=20
/4 /4
x=5
However, I try to test this by replacing x with 5
2(57)=2(5)+34
10+14=10+34
24=44
So I have the feeling I am doing something wrong. (Speechless)

2(57)=2(5)+34
10+14=10+34
here is the mistake...
2(57) = 2(5) + 34
10 + 14 = 10 + 34
24 = 24

Errrr
I can't believe it was right there in front of my face and I missed it!! (Swear)
Thank you very much for the help.
