    k ty
    this is how i worked it out:
    2(12-8x)=x-11x
    24-16x=1x-11x
    -1x
    24-16x= -12x
    -(-12)
    24=-4x
    -6=x

  • math -

    Here's your mistake.

    24-16x=1x-11x

    24 - 16x = -10x

    24 = -10x + 16x
    24 = 6x
    24/6 = x
    4 = x

  • math -

    2(12-8x)=x-11x
    24-16x=1x-11x
    -1x
    24-16x= -12x 24 - 16x = -10x
    -(-12) 24 = 6x
    24=-4x x = 4
    -6=x
