Question

# Solve the equation. Write a reason for each step.

𝑥 − 2 + 3(𝑥 + 2) = 3𝑥 + 10

Hint:

### Open the brackets

## The correct answer is: x = 6

### SOL – It is given that 𝑥 − 2 + 3(𝑥 + 2) = 3𝑥 + 10

Opening the brackets

We get, x – 2 + 3x + 6 = 3x + 10

4x + 4 = 3x + 10 ( Adding similar terms )

4x – 3x = 10 – 4

x = 6.
