We simplify the equation to the form, which is simple to understand 7x-1/2(8x+4)=6 Simplifying: 7x-0.5*(8x+4)=6 Reorder the terms  7x+(-4x-2)=6 Remove unnecessary parentheses +7x-4x-2=+6 We move all terms containing x to the left and all other terms to the right. +7x-4x=+6+2 We simplify left and right side of the equation. +3x=+8 We divide both sides of the equation by 3 to get x. x=2.66666666667

1) distribute -1/2 7x - 4x -2 = 6 2) combine like terms 3x - 2 = 6 3) use the addition properties of equality 3x = 8 4) use the division properties of equality x = 8/3
