    first of all the left side can be simplified by adding the x terms 6x-2x+10=4x+10 4x+10=4(x+2) now on the right hand side you want to multiply our the brackets 4(x+2)=4x+8 4x+10=4x+8 lol what? did you write the question right?

    there is no solution as when you simplify 4x+10=4x+8 you get 0=-2

    @amorfide it wouldn't be -2, 10-8 is 2.
