Question

# Solve for x 4(x−3)=8(x−1)

Answer

-1

- Distribute the terms on both sides of the equation. 4x-12=8x-8
- Isolate the variable terms and the constants terms on different sides of the equation. Subtract 4x from both sides. -12=4x-8
- Isolate the variable term by adding 8 to both sides. -4=4x
- Simplify by dividing both sides by 4. -1=x
