Help 14x = 2 (5x + 14)
I would divide by 2 first instead of distributing. This simplifies the expression
subtract 5x from both sides to get the x terms together
divide by 2 to both sides get rid of the coefficient.
14x = 2 (5x + 14) 4x = 28 x = 7
I would do the distrubti property first multiply 2*5x then do 2*14
Thank You all very much very helpful!
@Brewers121 it's personal preference but I find that is two steps compared to my one.
