x=4+6+x+5+x+2x+5

x=20+4x

x=-20/3

The given equation is

x=4+6+x+5+x+2x+5

its simple linear eqaution in x for which we have to solve

x=10+x+5+3x+5

x=4x+20

-3x=20

Thus,x=-20/3

x= -6.67

It's very easy to find the value of x

Firstly add all the numericals

I. E. X=10+x+5+x+2x+5

    X=15+x+2x+x+5

   X= 20+x+2x+x

Now add the x terms 

  X=20+4x

Now -20=4x-x

      -20=3x

     -20/3=x

    

In this kind of a question the value of x cannot be mathematically be found but can only be simplified

4+6+x+5+x+2x+5=4+6+5+x+x+2x

=15+4x

Hey, it's pretty easy i guess. 

x = 4+6+x+5+x+2x+5

x = 20+4x

-3x = 20

x = -20/3

x: 4+6+x+5+x+2x+5

  • Step 1:collect the like terms:

- Numbers (the + before the number tells you to add)

x: 4+6+x+5+x+2x+5

4+6+5+5 = 20

- x’s

x: 4+6+x+5+x+2x+5

x+x+2x

4x

  • Step 2:  put the equation back together, set it to 0

20+4x (simplified answer)

  • Step 3: To find the factor divide 20 by 4 as 4x is 4 multiplied by x. The inverse to multiplexed is divide.

X = 20/4

X = 5


x: 4+6+x+5+x+2x+5

  • Step 1:collect the like terms:

- Numbers (the + before the number tells you to add)

x: 4+6+x+5+x+2x+5

4+6+5+5 = 20

- x’s

x: 4+6+x+5+x+2x+5

x+x+2x

4x

  • Step 2:  put the equation back together, set it to 0

20+4x (simplified answer)

  • Step 3: To find the factor divide 20 by 4 as 4x is 4 multiplied by x. The inverse to multiplexed is divide.

X = 20/4

X = 5


add all the terms and equate it to ZERO

so it comes, 4X+20= 0

                      X= -20/4 = -5

x = 20 +4x

0 = 20 + 3x

3x = -20

x = -20/3

20+4x=0; then 4x= -20; so x= -20/4; answer x = -5

20+4x

Sum up all integer values Like,4+6+5+5=20

And, sum up all the digits having x.. Like, x+x+2x=4x

So, answer will be, x=20/4=5

Set the equation equal to zero and then combine the like terms

20 + 4x = 0

Then subtract 20 from both sides of the equation.

4x = -20

The divide both sides by 4 and you get your  answer

x=-5

Put the equation equal to zero and group like terms. So, 

20+4x=0 

-20=4x 

x= -5

Sorry another x was missed


So correct one is as follows

20+4x=0

4x=-20

X=-20/4

X= -5

4+6+X+5+X+2x+5=0

Add numbers

20+x+2x=0

20+3x=0

3x=-20 (+ will be - when it shifts to right side)

X=-20/3

X= -6.66


Put the equation equal to zero 

Put like terms together

Solve for x

Be conscious of the negative and positive sign as required.

4+6+x+5+x+2x+5 = 0

(4+6+5+5)+(x+x+2x) = 0

20+4x = 0

4x = -20, divide both sides by the highest common factor which is 4.

x = -5.

Hope this helps even though, I have seen same answers below. Good luck.

The equation can be rewritten as,
(2x+x+x)+(6+4+5+5)

which is equal to 

4x+20=0

=>4x=-20

=>x=-5

Hence, x=5


U need to sum up all the numbers together that dono have x..

Like,4+6+5+5=20

And, sum up all the digits having x..

Like, x+x+2x=4x


So, answer will be, x=20/4=5

Collect the like terms first: x/4+x+x+2x is x/4+4x which is x/4+16x/4= 17x/4. 6+5+5=16, hence the algebraic expression equals 17x/4 + 16
