Step 1: Write the data as a generalized function
5x-4=2(x-2)
5x-4=2x-4
Step 2: Add 4 to both parts of the equation
5x-4+4=2x-4+4
Step 3: Simplification
5x=2x-4+4
5x=2x
Step 4: Subtract 2x from both parts of the equation
5x-2x=2x-2x
Step 5: Simplification
3x=2x-2x
3x=0
Step 6: Divide both parts of the equation by one term
$$\displaystyle{\frac{{{3}{x}}}{{{3}}}}={\frac{{{0}}}{{{3}}}}$$
Step 7: Simplification
$$\displaystyle{x}={\frac{{{0}}}{{{3}}}}$$
The solution
x=0
