Which of the following describes the correct process for solving the equation 2x − 6 = 22 and arrives at the correct solution?
A)Divide both sides by −6 and then add 2. The solution is x = 8.
B)Subtract 6 from both sides of the equation and then divide by 2. The solution is x = 7.
C)Add 6 to both sides of the equation and then divide by 2. The solution is x = 14.
D)Add 6 to both sides of the equation and then divide by 22. The solution is x = −14.
