1) [latex] \frac{x}{4} -5=6[/latex] First, multiply both sides by 4.  [latex]x - 20 = 24[/latex] Second, add 20 to both sides.  [latex]x = 24 + 20[/latex] Third, add 24 + 20. [latex]x = 44 [/latex] 2) [latex]6(-3 - x) - 2x = 14[/latex] First, expand to get rid of parentheses.  [latex]-18 - 6x - 2x = 14[/latex] Second, simplify. [latex]-18 - 8x = 14[/latex] Third, add 18 to both sides. [latex]-8x = 14 + 18[/latex] Fourth, add 14 + 18. [latex]-8x = 32[/latex] Fifth, divide both sides by -8. [latex]x = \frac{32}{-8} [/latex] Sixth, simplify the fraction into a negative. [latex]x = -\frac{32}{8} [/latex] Seventh, since 4 goes into 8 to get 32, simplify the fraction to 4. [latex]x = -4[/latex] Answer for 1) x = 44 Answer for 2) x = -4
