    Isolate the "x" terms by subtracting 2x from each side. Get the the numeric terms on the right by adding 5 to each side.

    Then once you add 5 to both sides as you can see on the 3x-5 side 5will give you zero and on the 2x+6 side 5 will give you 11 then you put 11 in as x on both sides and it will give you your answer.
