posted by .

solve: 2x+2(x+3)=2(x+7)

what I got was x=4 but I really think I calculated wrong. Can you show me the step by step process please?

    first off, did you check to see whether x=4 fits the equation?

    2(4)+2(4+3) =?= 2(4+7)
    8 + 14 =?= 22
    yes, so your answer is correct

    2x+2(x+3)=2(x+7)
    2x+2x+6 = 2x+14
    4x+6 = 2x+14
    2x = 8
    x = 4

    Looks like you nailed it.
    Good job.

    2x+2(x+3)=2(x+7)

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

    4x + 6 = 2x + 14

    2x = 8

    x = 4

    You're right.
