#### Storyboard Text

• 3x - 6 = 4(2 - 3x) - 8x
• Solving multi-step equations can look hard, but once you break it down into steps, its easy!
• 3x - 6 = 4(2 - 3x) - 8x3x -6 = 8 - 12x -8x
• First, use the distributive property on the values in the parenthesis.
• 3x - 6 = 4(2 - 3x) - 8x
• 3x -6 = 8 - 12x -8x3x - 6 = 8 - 20x
• Next, you add or subtract the like terms on either side of the equals sign. In this case, that means the values with x.
• Then add or subtract the like terms.
• 3x - 6 = 4(2 - 3x) - 8x
• 3x - 6 = 8 - 20x -3x -3x -6 = 8 - 23x
• Then you subtract the smaller x value on both sides.
• Then add or subtract the like terms.
• -6 = 8 - 23x -8 -8 14 = -23x
• 3x - 6 = 4(2 - 3x) - 8x
• After that, you subtract the 8 on both sides. You want to get the 23x by itself.
• Then add or subtract the like terms.
• 14 = -23x -23x -23x 14/23 = x 1.64 = x
• 3x - 6 = 4(2 - 3x) - 8x
• Then add or subtract the like terms.
• Finally, you divide both sides by -23x. This gets you 14/23 or 1.64 equals x.
