What is the solution to the equation 12(x + 5) = 4x ?

12(x + 5) = 4x

12x + 60 = 4x {used distributive property}

60 = -8x {subtracted 12x from each side}

x = -60/8 {divided each side by -8}

12x + 60 = 4x {used distributive property}

60 = -8x {subtracted 12x from each side}

x = -60/8 {divided each side by -8}

**x = -7.5**{changed to decimal}__Ask Algebra House__
