The work of a student to solve the equation 4(2x − 4) = 8 + 2x + 8 is shown below:
Step 1: 4(2x − 4) = 8 + 2x + 8
Step 2: 6x − 8 = 16 + 2x
Step 3: 6x − 2x = 16 + 8
Step 4: 4x = 24
Step 5: x = 6
In which step did the student first make an error and what is the correct step?
Step 2; 8x − 4 = 2(6 + x + 6)
Step 2; 8x − 16 = 16 + 2x
Step 3; 6x − 2x = 16 − 8
Step 3; 6x + 2x = 16 + 8

Step 1 is 4(2x − 4) = 8 + 2x + 8
Step 2 is distributing the parenthesis and adding like terms. However, the student multiplied the parenthesis wrong. She said 4(2x-4)= 6x-8. Instead of multiplying the terms, they added them. The correct solution would be 8x-16.
Therefore, the answer correct answer choice is
B: Step 2; 8x − 16 = 16 + 2x
thank you can you help me with only 9 more questions
Remember, when multiplying parenthesis, you need to multiply the number outside the parenthesis to BOTH values inside. Like this:
4(2x) + 4(-4)
And if you have more questions, post them seperately. It's not fair to the people helping if you post them all here. :) If you have 9 more questions, you should have 9 more medals to give, but you can't if they're all in one chat.
