    Answer: See explanation

    Step-by-step explanation:

    4x + 20x – 8 = -2 (-12x + 8)

    Step 1

    Distribute -2 to (-12x + 8)

    4x + 20x – 8 = 24x – 16

    Step 2

    Combine 4x and 20x together

    24x – 8 = 24x – 16

    Step 3

    Add 8 to both sides

    24x = 24x – 8

    Step 4

    Subtract 24x from both sides

    0 ≠ -8

    That is incorrect so it’s not a solution

    Hope I helped!

    Follow pemdas: start with distributing the -2 unto the (-12x+8) which will equal 24 -16 which is 8. Then add the 8 from the other side which is 16. Add like terms on the other side which is 24x. Then divide by 24. You get 2/3 when simplified. Hope this helps:)
