2x+4(1x)=11+5x
2x+44x=11+5x
6x+4=11+5x
6x=7+5x
x=7
i think this is it
x = 7 is not correct.
Here's how the problem should work out:
Use the distributive property to get rid of the parentheses and you will end up with this: 2x + 4  4x = 11 + 5x
Combining like terms: 2x + 4 = 11 + 5x
Now isolate x on one side of the equation. Let's subtract 5x from both sides (whatever operation you do to one side of an equation you must do to the other side as well).
2x  5x + 4 = 11 + 5x  5x
Combining like terms: 7x + 4 = 11
Subtract 4 from both sides: 7x + 4  4 = 11  4
Combining like terms: 7x = 7
Finally, divide both sides by 7 to get x by itself and solve the equation:
7x/7 = 7/7
Therefore, x = 1
How to check? Substitute 1 for x into the original equation. It always helps to check your work!
I hope this is clear and will help.
