step by step how to would be nice
8x+6=4x+26
First, you want to get all the variables you are trying to solve for on one side
so subtract 4x from both side
8x+6=4x+26
-4x -4x
That leaves you with
4x+6=26 (because 4x-4x=0 so that term is eliminated)
Next, subtract six from both sides
4x+6=26
-6 -6
That leaves 4X=20 (again, 6-6=0 so that term is eliminated)
Now divide the whole thing by 4 and get X=5
8x + 6 = 4x + 26
Remember that you are solving for x
Therefore, place all the figures with x on one side and those without x
on the other side.
During the reshuffling, the signs are bound to change.
For instance, bringing 4x to the place of 8x changes the sign to -4x.
Likewise, transferring 6 to the position of 26 changes the sign to -6.
New equation: 8x - 4x = 26 - 6
4x = 20
x = 20/4
x = 5
