Well I really dont understand this equation:
58= 5x + x + 4
How do you solve it? Please work through it
Well I really dont understand this equation:

58 = 5x + x + 4 Given
58 = 6x + 4 Simplify (5x + x)
58 - 4 = 6x + 4 - 4 Subtract 4 from each side
58 - 4 = 6x + 0 Inverse property of addition
58 - 4 = 6x Identity property of addition
54 = 6x simplify (58 - 4 = 54)
54/6 = 6x/6 Divide both sides by 6
54/6 = 1x Inverse property of multiplication
54/6 = x Identity property of multiplication
9 = x Simplify (54/6 = 9)
