Subtract 5x from both sides.

x - 4 = 2

x = 6

Check it.

5 x 6 + 2 = 32

6 x 6 - 4 = 32

It checks.

x=6Solution:x + 2x + 14 = 5x + 214 - 2 = 5x - 3x12 = 2xx = 12/2 = 6

5x+2=2x-10 x=-4

5x + 2 = 22 5x = 22 - 2 5x = 20 5x/5 = 20/5 x=4

Here is the work for that problem: 5x+ 2=12 5x= 12-2 5x=10 x= 2

x=6Solution:x + 2x + 14 = 5x + 214 - 2 = 5x - 3x12 = 2xx = 12/2 = 6

5x+2=2x-10 x=-4

5x + 2 = 22 5x = 22 - 2 5x = 20 5x/5 = 20/5 x=4

x = zero

3x + 2 + 2x = 7; 3x + 2x = 5x, so 5x + 2 = 7; 7-2=5, so 5x=5. 5x divided by 5 and 5 divided by 5 equals 1, so x equals 1.

x = -5

x = -1.4
