# How do you solve #4x-(x+1)=x-(x-5)#?

x=2

4x - (x+1) = x - (x-5)

= 4x -x -1 = x -x +5
=3x-1 = +5
=3x = 6
=x = 2

To solve the equation 4x - (x + 1) = x - (x - 5), follow these steps:

- Distribute the negative sign inside the parentheses on both sides: 4x - x - 1 = x - x + 5
- Combine like terms: 4x - x - 1 = x - x + 5 becomes 3x - 1 = 5
- Add 1 to both sides: 3x = 5 + 1
- Simplify: 3x = 6
- Divide both sides by 3: x = 6 / 3

Therefore, the solution is: x = 2.
