    2(x+1)=38
    2x+2=38
    -2 – 2
    2x=36
    __=__
    2 2
    x=18
    The full answer is equal to 18 🙂

    There are two methods to do this:

    1. 2(x + 1) = 38

    2*x + 2*1 = 38 (Expand the bracket)

    2x + 2 = 38

    2x = 36 (Subtract 2 from both sides)

    x = 18 (Divide each side by 2)

    2. 2(x + 1) = 38

    (x + 1) = 19 (Divide each side by 2)

    x = 18 (Subtract 1 from each side)
