First you distribute: 2x+1210=12+4x4 Then you combine like terms: 2x+2=4x+8 Next you subtract the x's from one side: 2=2x+8 Subract the number alone from the other side: 6=2x I like to flip the equation so the x is on the left side, but that's just me: 2x=6 Then divide the x: 2x/2=x and 6/2=3 Answer: x=3
