4(2x+4) Using the distributive property

8x+16=8x+16

If you mean 

 

8x+16 = 4(2x+4) 

 

then the answer is all real numbers. 

 

 

 

Using the distributive property of multiplication, the 4 on the right hand side would be distributed evenly among the parenthesis. 4 times 2x is 8x. 4 times 4 is 16

 

you would be left with

 

8x+16=8x+16
