The equation to be solved is 2(9 - 2x) = 2

2(9 - 2x) = 2

=> 18 - 4x = 2

=> 4x = 16

=> x = 16/4

=> x = 4

The solution of the equation is x = 4.

2(9-2x)=2

=  18-4x=2

= -4x=2-18

= -4x=-16

=    x=4

 

Therefore,the answer for this equation is (x=4)

The equation to be solved is 2(9 - 2x) = 2

2(9 - 2x) = 2

= 18 - 4x = 2

= 4x = 16

= x = 16/4

= x = 4

therefore the solution is 4

You can check it by substuting 4 into the equation to see whether you've got it right.

Hope this helps!

2(9-2x) = 2

18 - 4x = 2

18 - 4x + 4x = 2 + 4x

18 = 2 + 4x

18 - 2 = 2 + 4x - 2

16 = 4x

16/4 = 4x/4

4 = x
