To solve this question,
Lets assume:
The number itself is denoted by the variable
X
So,
Difference with five would mean subtracting this number with five. Hence:
X-5
Twice the difference of a number and five means multiplying the entire term by 2. That is:
2(X-5)
Simplifying:
2(X-5)=0
2X-10=0
2X=10
X=10/2
X=5
Hence the number is 5
Now putting it in the equation:
2(5-5)=0
2(0)=0
0=0
