# Find the value of x in the following equation 8 – 4x = 2x – 4.

We will use the concept of linear equations in order to find the value of x.

## Answer: The value of x in the following equation 8 – 4x = 2x – 4 is 2.

Let us see how we will use the concept of linear equations in order to find the value of x.

**Explanation:**

We have been given the equation that is 8 – 4x = 2x – 4.

Let us transpose -4 on the left-hand side and -4x on the right-hand side.

On transposing we get,

8 + 4 = 2x + 4x

12 = 6x

x = 2

### Hence, the value of x in the equation 8 – 4x = 2x – 4 is 2.
