Simplifying Algebraic Expression

Using the Distributive Property & Combining Like Terms

Solve:

4 (g +7) = 64

4g + 4(4) = 64

4g + 16 = 64

I'm getting a bit confused and struggling a lot in this problem. Please help me!

Where did you get your second line?

4 (g +7) = 64

4g + 28 = 64

4g + 28 - 28 = 64 - 28

4g = 36

g = 36/4

g = 9
