Determine which equation below has a solution of x = 2. A. 5x + 8 – 12x = –6x + 2x – 3 B. 6x + 4 – 12x = –10x + 18x – 3 C. –4x – 6 + x = –2x + x – 10 D. –3x – 8 + x = –4x + x – 10

Plug 2 in for x for each answer, and see which one works. Can you test A to see if that works?

Plug x=2 into each one, and see where you get a true equality statement. Or better yet, SOLVE each equation and see for which one you get the solution x=2

So.. it can't be a because it makes out -6 = -11?

Looks right to me! :) good job. I would always check all 4 equations, just in case you made a mistake - it's a good double-check. But I agree, C is the correct answer. :)
