To solve the equation 4x - 2 = 2x + 8, first, you need to get all the x terms on one side of the equation and the constants on the other side.

Start by subtracting 2x from both sides: 4x - 2x - 2 = 2x - 2x + 8

This simplifies to: 2x - 2 = 8

Then, add 2 to both sides: 2x - 2 + 2 = 8 + 2

This simplifies to: 2x = 10

Finally, divide both sides by 2: 2x/2 = 10/2

This simplifies to: x = 5

So, the solution to the equation is x = 5.
