The distributive property means you DISTRIBUTE a number/variable to other numbers in a set of parentheses. So, in this example, you would distribute a to b, c, and d to get this: a => b a => c a => d ab + ac + ad

Isolate the variable x onto one side of the equation: 6-2x = 6x-10x+14 -2x = 6x-10x+8 (subtract 6 from both sides) -2x = -4x+8 (add 6x and -10x) 2x = 8 (add 4x to both sides) x = 4 (divide each side by 2)
