6+x=2x-14. I'm not to sure how to solve this type of equation.

6+x=2x-14

First get the unknown quantitites on one side of the equation. Subtract x from both sides.

6 + x = -14

Then get the known quantities on the other side. Add 14 to both sides.

20 = x

6+x=2x-14
Letters on one side, numbers on the other. Subtract x from both sides.
6=x-14
20=x

6+x=2x-14

6+x=2x-14
6+x-x=2x-14-x
6=1x-14
6+14=1x-14+14
20=1x
20/1x=1x/1x
x=20

1.25 of 64

6+x=2x-14
-x = -x

6=x-14
6+14=+14
20=x
