1.multiply out the left side using the distributive property:

4*5x = 20x and 4*(-7) = -28; therefore 20x-28 = 5x-6

2.combine like terms

20x-5x = 15x and -6+28 = 22; therefore 15x = 22

3.divide both sides by 15

22/15 = 1.46666666667; therefore x = 22/15 or 1.4666667

first you distribute the 4 outside the parenthesis

4(5x-7)=5x-6

to get 20x-28=5x-6

then subtract 5x from 20x

to get 15x-7=-6

then add 28 to both sides

to get 15x=22

then divide 15 from both sides

to get x=22/15 or x=1.46666667

hope this helped

1) foil the left side

4*5x= 20x 4*-7=-28

20x-28=5x-6x

2)solve

20x=5x+22

15x=22
