We have, \(-6x+4=-8x-12\) We need to combine like terms, \(-6x+8x=-12-4\) Can you take it from there?

Our initial equation is, \(-6x + 4 =-8x - 12\) We need the terms with variables on one side and the terms with constants on the other. \((-6x + 4) =(-8x - 12)\rightarrow (-6x+8x)=(-12-4)\) \(-6x+8x=(-6+8)x\rightarrow 2x\) \(2x=-16\rightarrow x=-8\)
