2-4x-24=5x-8

Use the distributive property to multiply -4 by x+6.

-22-4x=5x-8

Subtract 24 from 2 to get -22.

-22-4x-5x=-8

Subtract 5x from both sides.

-22-9x=-8

Combine -4x and -5x to get -9x.

-9x=-8+22

Add 22 to both sides.

-9x=14

Add -8 and 22 to get 14.

x=\frac{14}{-9}

Divide both sides by -9.

x=-\frac{14}{9}

Fraction \frac{14}{-9}\approx -1.555555556 can be rewritten as -\frac{14}{9}\approx -1.555555556 by extracting the negative sign.
