##### Enter Equation or Inequality

Solve the following equation

5(x-6)=4(x-5)

Solve for x

5(x - 6) = 4(x - 5)

Simplify by removing parentheses
Simplify 5(x - 6):
Distribute the 5 to each term in (x-6)
5 * x = (5 * 1)x = 5x
5 * -6 = (5 * -6) = -30
Our Total expanded term is 5x-30

Simplify 4(x - 5):
Distribute the 4 to each term in (x-5)
4 * x = (4 * 1)x = 4x
4 * -5 = (4 * -5) = -20
Our Total expanded term is 4x-20

Our new term is
5x - 30 = 4x - 20

Simplify by removing parentheses
Our new term is
5x - 30 = 4x - 20

##### Group variables

Group our variables 5x and 4x
subtract 4x from both sides

5x - 30 - 4x = 4x - 20 - 4x

x - 30 = -20

##### Group constants

Group our constants -30 and -20.

x - 30 + 30 = -20 + 30

x = 10

x = 10

x = 10
