first use the distributive property \(a(b+c)=ab+ac\)
and tell me what u get for 6(2x+4)
Is that really the best course of action? I would think that subtracting 28, and then dividing by -6...etc would be faster.

Other answers:

yeah i dont remember the teacher saying anything about doing that hartnn
this action will lead to dividing by 12 in the end,whicj is simpler than dividing by -6
im confused can somone write out all the steps , then i can study what you did ? i have other problems like this on my homework i need to know how to solve this type of problem
i mean dividing by -6 and 2 also *
Personally, this is my approach: 28-6(2x+4)=124 ---Subtract 28 -6(2x+4)=96 ---multiply by -1, then divide by 6 (2x+4)=-96/6=-16 ---rewrite as 2x+4=-16 ---subtract 4 2x=-20 ---divide by 2 x=-10 This is my way of doing these kinds of questions, but there are definitely others.
i like this way , it seems easy to understand thank you! !
You're welcome! :) I'm glad to help.
28-6(2x+4)=124 distribute 28 - 12x - 24 = 124 28 - 24 - 124 = 12x -120 = 12x x = -10
either way is same amount of work
acually that way of doing it looks more familiar
