# How do you solve for x in #m=2(x+n)#?

You could multiply the 2 into the bracket, but in this case this is not a great idea because you will just to divide by 2 later.

To solve for ( x ) in the equation ( m = 2(x + n) ), you can follow these steps:

- Distribute the 2: ( m = 2x + 2n )
- Subtract ( 2n ) from both sides: ( m - 2n = 2x )
- Divide both sides by 2: ( \frac{m - 2n}{2} = x )

So, the solution for ( x ) is ( x = \frac{m - 2n}{2} ).
