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.
