Hello, my name is Stephen and I will be your instructor.
The first step is distributing your terms. Do you see any terms that can be distributed? (hint, look at the terms in parenthesis)

3x+3=-2x+2+6
Oops, you made a mistake!
You want to add the 2 + 6
3x + 3 = -2x + 8
Now, you want to add the -2x
5x + 3 = 8
