Can someone explain how you got the answer and work the problem for me?

First, you distribute the numbers.
2(128x) = x11x
2416x = x11x
Then combine like terms
2416x = 10x
After that, add 16x to both sides of the equation.
2416x = 10x
+16x +16x

24 = 6x
Finally, divide 6 by both sides of the equation to find x.
24 = 6x
 
6 6
4 = x

2(128x) = x11x
Let's get all the x's on the same side of the equation.
2(128x) = x11x
First, multiply out the left side:
2416x = x11x
Work the math on the right side:
2416x = 10x
Add 16x to both sides:
24 = 6x
Divide both sides by 6:
4 = x
===============
Now check:
2(128x) = x11x
2(128*4) = 411*4
2(1232) = 444
2(20) = 40
40 = 40
check

To solve this, you must get all your "x's" on the same side of the equation. But first, let's rewrite this equation:
2(128x) = x  11x
24  16x = 1x  11x
24  16x = 10x Now, we can add 16x to both sides!
24  16x + 16x = 10x + 16x This gives us,
24 = 6x Now, we solve for x! We do this by dividing both sides by 6.
24/6 = 6x/6
4 = x or, x = 4

You need to distribute the 2..
so 2416x=x
24=15x
then divide 24 by 15 to get x ðŸ™‚
