How do you solve these two equations for x?

1.) 60 - 2x = 70 – 4x

2) 20 - 8x = 30 - 16x

1.) 60 - 2x = 70 – 4x

2) 20 - 8x = 30 - 16x

1.) 60 - 2x = 70 - 4x

60 + 2x = 70 {added 4x to both sides}

2x = 10 {subtracted 60 from both sides}

x = 5 {divided both sides by 2}

2.) 20 - 8x = 30 - 16x

20 + 8x = 30 {added 16x to both sides}

8x = 10 {subtracted 20 from both sides}

x = 10/8 {divided both sides by 8}

x = 5/4 {reduced}
