Question

# Solve 5(2x − 8) = x + 14. Write a reason for each step.

Hint:

### using the additive property and subtraction property ,division property on both sides .solve for x.

## The correct answer is: x = 6

### Ans:- x = 6

Given ,5(2x − 8) = x + 14.

By left distributive property 10x - 40 = x +14

Adding 40 on both sides by additive property of equality both sides remain equal.

10x - 40 + 40 = x +14 + 40

10x = x + 54

Subtract x from both sides by subtraction property of equality both sides remains equal.

10x - x = x + 54 - x

9x = 54

Dividing 9 by division property of equality both sides remains equal.

∴x = 6
