    Start off by distributing |dw:1434431248249:dw| now you may collect like terms and solve for x :)

    Nope, because you're missing an x, notice -2(x-1) there's an x there.

    You're missing a +2, remember to distribute over the -1 as well, now collect like terms, everything with x's together and all the ones without x's together.
