Example 1 Solve for  x : 6(2  x  – 5) = 4(8  x  + 7).  To isolate the  x 's on either side of the equation, you can either add –12  x  to both sides or add –32  to both sides.  Multiply each side by  (or divide each side by 20).  The solution is  . This is indicated by placing the solution inside braces to form a set  This set is called the  solution set  of the equation. You can check this solution by replacing  x  with  in the original equation. The solution set is  Example 2
