Original equation                          2(5x + 8) = 6x + 20   

 

Multiply left side                            10x + 16  =  6x + 20  

 

Subtract 6x from both sides            4x + 16  =  20  

 

Subtract 16 from both sides                    4x  =  4  

 

Divide both sides by 4                               x  =  1
