4 (x  2) = 3 (1.5 + x)
1) 4x  8 = 4.5 + 3x Multiply the number outside the par. by the numbers inside the paranthesis. Distributive Property
2) 4x = 12.5 + 3x Eliminate the (8) from both sided by adding 8 to both sides. Combine like terms and inverse operations.
3) x = 12.5 Get x on one side by subtacting 3x from both sides. Combine like terms and inverse operations.
4) The check is up to you. The answer is x = 12.5.
