Question: what is the answer to the equation 2(x+14)=42 x being 14

If x is already given as 14, we can substitute the value of x into the equation and solve for the answer. The equation is: 2(x + 14) = 42 Substitute x with 14: 2(14 + 14) = 42 Now simplify: 2(28) = 42 56 = 42 But this is not true. Therefore, the given value of x is incorrect for this equation. To find the correct value of x, we need to solve the equation: 2(x + 14) = 42 Divide both sides by 2: x + 14 = 21 Subtract 14 from both sides: x = 7 So the correct value of x for this equation is 7.
