**2. Simplify and combine like terms: **

**(1/4)(3x - 2) - (5/4)(2x - 6)**

**(1/4)-(5/4)=(4/4)=1**

**(3x – 2)- -2x +6=**

**5x -8**

**3. Solve for x, collect variables on the left side of the equation:**

**7x - 3 = - 5x – 18**

**7x + 5x =12x -5x +5x =0**

**12x -3+3 =-18+3**

**Divide 12 both sides 12/12x=-15/12**

**X=-4/3 x=-1 1/3**

**4. Solve for x, collect variables on the left side of the equation:**

**4(x - 3) + 2 = 3x + 8 - 2x **

**4x -12 +2 = 3x +8 -2x **

**3x-2x=x -12 + 2=-10**

**4x -10=x+8**

**-x from both sides 3x -10=8**

**Add 10 both sides 3x=18**

**Divide 3 both sides x=6**

**5. Solve for x, collect variables on the left side of the equation:**

**(x – 4)/2 – 1/4 = (6x - 1)/20**

**Find LCD and simplify x -4 – 1/2 = 6x-1/10 add 1 to each side**

**10 times all terms 10x – 30 - 5 = 60x**

**Minus 10x form both sides -25 = 50x**
