-2(x-4)-(8x-3)=2-(6x-1)
What did you do first?

distribute the -2(x-4)

yes that is the problem

Don't just tell me - SHOW me!

-2(x-4),-2x+8

-2x+8-8x+3=2+6x+1

combine the like terms then solve like a regular equation

how did you get +3

a negative (-) times -3 = a positive number, hence +3

that is how i distributed it

so when I see -(8x_3) I distribute the - sign as a coefficient of -1

That is a reasonable understanding. It is the same on the last parentheses.

thank you both I have been beating myself up over this one for a while I got the answer I needed

Woo-hoo! Good work!

nice process @tkhunny awesome job! ^.^

i cant give a best response because you both did awsome

No worries. You learning is what is important!

-2x+4-8x+3=2-6x+1
=>-10x+5=-6x+3
=>-4x=-2
=>x=2
