How to work out 2(4x-5)=4(x-1)?

#### Answer

_ Page**1**

firstly you have to multiply out the brackets so you would do the following

2 x 4x - 5 x 2

this would be 8x - 10 for the first bracket

4 multiplied by x - 4 x 1

this would be 4x - 4

so now you have the following

8x - 10 = 4x - 4

take 10 onto the other side

8x = 4x + 6

now take the 4x onto the other side

4x = 6

now divide both sides by 4

x = 1.5

i hope this has helped you :) xx

8x-10 = 4x-4

4x = 6

x= 3/2

8x-10=4x-4

8x-6=4x

4x-6=0

4x=6

2X=3

x=1 1/2

8x - 10 = 4x - 4

4x = 6

x = 6/4

2(4x-5)=4(x-1)

8x-10 = 4x-4 |+4

8x-6 = 4x |-4x

4x-6 = 0 |+6

4x = 6 |/4

x= 1.5

hi

2(4x-5) = 4(x-1)

=> 8x - 10 = 4x - 4

=> 4x = 6

=> x = 3/2

2(4x - 5) = 4(x - 1)

8x - 10 = 4x - 4

4x = 6

x = 6/4 = 1.5

2(4x - 5) = 4(x - 1)

8x - 10 = 4x - 4

4x = 6

x = 1.5 or 1 1/2.
