Subtract 4x 2x+14 = 15 Subtract 14 2x = 1 Divide by 2 x = 1/2 Answer by rapaljer(4667)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!6x +14=4x+15 You have to get all the x terms on one side (let's say the left side) and all the number terms on the other side (this would be the right side!). You do this by getting rid of the 4x. Subtract 4x from each side. 6x+14-4x= 4x-4x+15 2x+14=15 Now, get rid of the +14 by subtracting 14 from each side: 2x+14-14=15-14 2x=1 Now, what is left is 2x, which means 2 TIMES x. To "undo" the multiplication by 2, you have to DIVIDE both sides by 2: For additional help with this VERY important topic of EQUATION SOLVING, please visit my own website.
