here 4c + 6 = 26

or c = 5

Now putting the value of c in the equation = 3c - 2 = (3 * 5) - 2 = 13

Explanation

When solving algebraically, be careful to perform the same operation on both sides of the equation: \(4c + 6 = 26\), so subtract 6 from both sides to find \(4c = 20\) and \(c = 5\).

Therefore, \(3c - 2 = (3 \times 5) - 2 = 13.\)
