# x/4-5=6 what is the answer and 6(-3 - x)- 2x =14

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