Question

# Use the distributive property to solve the equation 28- (3x+4)= 2(x+6)+x

Hint:

### ○ Distributive property

a ( b + c) = ab + ac

○ Then perform basic arithmatic operations to get value of x.

## The correct answer is: x = 2.

### ○ Given:

28- (3x+4)= 2(x+6)+x

○ Step 1:

○ Use distributive property

○ a ( b + c) = ab + ac

28- (3x+4)= 2(x+6)+x

28 - 3x - 4 = 2x + 12 + x

28 - 12 - 4 = 2x + x + 3x

12 = 6x

x =

x = 2

- Final Answer:

x = 2.
