To solve for x:

`4x+2=16`

`rArr 4x=16-2`

`rArr 4x=14`

`rArr x=14/4=7/2`

Therefore the value of x is `7/2` or `3 1/2` .

4x+2=16 First combine like terms

    -2   -2

4x=14

`(4x)/4 = 14/4`

`x=3.5`

4x + 2 = 16

First we have to get " x " alone, so subtract 2 on both sides

By subtracting, you should get 

4x = 14 now divide both sides by 4

By dividing, you should get 

X = 14/4 simplify

X= 7/2 which is your answer
