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
