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

Cancel 4x on the right side:

x - 30 = -20

Group constants

Group our constants -30 and -20. add 30 to both sides

x - 30 + 30 = -20 + 30

Cancel 30 on the left side:

x = 10

Final Answer

x = 10

What is the Answer?

x = 10
