Weegy: Simplifying -6x + -2 = 40 Reorder the terms: -2 + -6x = 40 Solving -2 + -6x = 40 Solving for variable 'x'. Move all terms containing x to the left, [ all other terms to the right. Add '2' to each side of the equation. -2 + 2 + -6x = 40 + 2 Combine like terms: -2 + 2 = 0 0 + -6x = 40 + 2 -6x = 40 + 2 Combine like terms: 40 + 2 = 42 -6x = 42 Divide each side by '-6'. x = -7 Simplifying x = -7 ]
