Problem: 3(x-2)+2

Remember "Please Ask My Dear Aunt Sally"

Step 1: distribute 3 inside the parenthesis

3x-6+2

Step 2: Add like terms

3x - 4

I'm assuming you are looking to solve for the unknown variable, x, when the equation is equal to 0.

If that is the case, the problem is as follows: 3(x - 2) + 2 = 0

You'll first need to distribute the 3 into the terms inside the set of parentheses pertaining to it. That is, multiply 3 by each term inside the parentheses:

3(x - 2) + 2 = 0

(3·x - 3·2) + 2 = 0

(3x - 6) + 2 = 0

3x - 6 + 2 = 0

combine like terms

3x - 4 = 0

add 4 to both sides of the equation

3x - 4 + 4 = 0 + 4

3x = 4

divide both sides of the equation by 3

3x/3 = 4/3

**x = 4/3**
