2(4n-5) = 6

4n-5 = 3 (divide both sides by 2)

4n = 8 (add 5 to both sides)

n=2 (divide both sides by 4)

Or

2(5-4n) = 6

5-4n = 3 (divide both sides by 2)

-4n = -2 (subtract 5 from both sides)

n = 1/2 (divide both sides by -4)

It depends on what you mean by "the difference between __ and __".
