then distribute a 1 for the  sign in front of the other. then, combine like terms, isolate your variable and solve.

so 2(x+2) = 2(x) + 2(2) for the first part

so for the 2nd part ou should have x  1. put that all together and you have 2x+2x1=8

now simplify by combining like terms .. thus x+1 = 8. then you need to move that 1 over to the other side by subtracting it from each side. so x+11=81 .. now you have x = 81

NamelessBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes it should be x = 8+1 since you have to add 1 to both sides.. my mistake

math456Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
first multiply out the 2 with the stuff thats inside the brackets.

NamelessBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and yes.. because of the minus sign. u distribute that as well

math456Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1

math456Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
here its x+3=8 not subtracy the 3 on both sides. you will get x=83 so the x=5
