    Answer:

    4 2/3

    Step-by-step explanation:

    4(2x -3) + 8(x – 4) = 2(2x + 6)

    Distribute

    8x -12 + 8x -32 = 4x +12

    Combine like terms

    16x – 44 = 4x+12

    Subtract 4x from each side

    16x-4x-44 =4x-4x+12

    12x-44 = 12

    Add 44 to each side

    12x-44+44 = 12+44

    12x = 56

    Divide each side by 12

    12x/12 = 56/12

    x = 14 / 3

    Changing to a mixed number

    x = 4 2/3
