Solve 2x + 10 = 4x + 6

This question require us to rearrange the equation and solve it to find the vale of x.

Firstly we need to make sure all of the x are on one side of the equation. To put all the values of x on one side we can subtract 2x from both sidesof the equation so we have:

                        10 = 2x +6

Next we want to get the 2x on its own so we need to subtract 6 from both sides so we get:

                         4 = 2x

Now we need to find the value of x so we need to divide each side by 2 so we get

                        2 = x
