    Mutiply it all out. So 8*2x+8*-14+13=4x-27 Next 16x-112+13=4x-27 , We Simplify. so 16x-99=4x-27 , then we subtract 4x from both sides. 16x-4x-99=-27 simplify. 12x-99=-27 Next add 99 to both sides. 12x=99-27 simplify , 12x=72 divide both sides by 12 to get X by itself. x=72/12 x=6

    Multiply out 8(2x-14) so we get 16x-112+13=4x-27 move X to one side, and all other terms to the other side :) 16x-4x=112-13-27 then we simplify the equation so 12x=72 then we divide by 12 so x=6
