    to solve this separate constant and variable on opposite side,move -x to the right hand side and move 3 to the right hand side of equation

    multiply the equation by 2 on both side so the value of x would be 8

    now actually when +3 will move to the right hand side of equation it's sign would become opposite

    and then we flip 1/2 and multiply it on both sides but isn't it a negative ? @Hassan3130

    no it will positive,we have -x on right hand side and when we will bring him to left hand it sign will change,right?
