3x-12=-2x+18 (distributive property) Now add two x to both sides. 5x-12=18 Now add. 12 to both sides. 5x=30 Divide both sides by 5. x=6

3(x - 4) = -2x + 18 Basically, you need to solve for x 3(x - 4) = -2x + 18 3x - 12 = -2x + 18 +2x        +2x 5x - 12 = 18       +12   +12 5x = 30 x = 6 Answer: The value that makes this equation true would be 6.
