solve the equation
154x=2(3x+1)
154x=6x+1
4x+6x+115
2x14
x=14/2=7

154x = 2(3x+1)
154x = 6x + 2
Combine all the 'x' terms on one side and the constant terms on the other side.
15  2 = 6x + 4x
13 = 10x
So, x=?

No, you made a handfull of errors.
Second line, on the right should be +2
Third line. What happened to equal signs? THis is awfully sloppy work.
154x=6x+2
subtract 15 from both sides.
Subtract 6x from both sides.
