Marty's class collected $26.00 in a school-wide penny collection contest. If Tommy's class added $4.00 to the amount they collected, x, and then multiplied the sum by 2, they would have the same amount of money as Marty's class.
2(x + $4.00)= $26.00

Apparently all you have to do here is to solve the given equation. What would you do first to accomplish that?
You'd need to figure out whats inside the parenthesis first wouldn't you?
That's a good question.
However, without knowing the value of x, we can't do much with x+4.00.
the goal here is to solve for the unknown quantity, x. How would you begin to isolate x+4.00?
