-4 (3-2x) + 2x=2x-8

First Distribute your - 4 to get - 12+8x+2x=2x-8

Then combine like terms to get - 12+10x=2x-8

Add 8 over to the - 12 to get - 4+10x=2x

Subtract 10x from 2x to get - 4=-8x

Finally, divide - 4 by - 8x to get x=1/2.

The correct answer is Letter C.

-4 (3-2x) + 2x=2x-8

distribute - 4 through (3-2x) = - 12+8x

-12+8x+2x=2x-8

Cancel out 2x by subtracting it from both sides.

-12+8x=-8

Add 12 to both sides in order to get the - 8x alone,

8x=4

Divide both sides by 8,

you will get 1/2 and that is C).
