    You can open it up and try moving everything to one side, and letting the other side equal to zero

    well by doing that i would also get different answers but i think you could be right on both things so then the answer would be B would it not?

    umm I don't think so... so what I mean is this.. you would open the brackets up on both sides to get.. 4x + 10 = 4x + 12 do you see what I did? And do you see the problem we now face?
