how do you solve 4+2*2*2=2(1+x)

4 + (2 * 2 * 2) = 2(1+x) or, 12= 2(1+x) or, 1+x= 12/2 or, x= 6-1=5

how do you simply 4+2*2*2=2(1+x) **Weegy:** 2x=x+2, 2x-x=2, x(2-x)=2. Is that factored enough? Need anything else? **User:** how to solve 4+2*2*2=2(1+x) **Weegy:** 12=2(1+x)
then by using associative property
12=2+2x
then
12-2=2x
last
10/2 = 2x/2 is 5=x
THEREFORE x= 5

To simply the equation 4 + 2 * 2 * 2 = 2(1 + x), follow these steps:

1. Solve the right-hand side of the equation:

2(1 + x) = 2 + 2x

2. Now, the equation becomes:

4 + 2 * 2 * 2 = 2 + 2x

3. Perform the multiplication on the left-hand side:

4 + 2 * 4 = 2 + 2x

4. Continue simplification:

4 + 8 = 2 + 2x

5. Combine like terms:

12 = 2 + 2x

6. Isolate the variable (x) by moving constant terms to the other side:

12 - 2 = 2x

7. Simplify the left-hand side:

10 = 2x

8. Finally, solve for x by dividing both sides by 2:

x = 10 / 2

x = 5

So the value of x that satisfies the equation is 5.
