Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, without having to distribute the 2, since its already on the outside, you can just divide both sides by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now you can add nine to both sides to get the x term by itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[2\left(3x7\right)+18=10\quad :\quad x=1\] 2(3x − 7) + 18 = 10 6x14+18=10 6x+4=10 subtract 4 on both sides 6x4+4=104 6x=6 x=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2just take every terms without x to the right side of equation to get the value of x it's simple first try your own then ask for explanation that's the way of learning.
