$$\sf \color{red}{A ~number ~x ~subtracted ~from ~36} ~\color{green}{is} ~\color{blue}{three ~times} ~\color{purple}{the ~sum ~of ~four ~and ~x}.$$ $$~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\color{red}{36 - x}~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\color{green}{=}~~~~~~~~\color{blue}{3 \times }~~~~~~~~~~~\color{purple}{~~~~~~(4 + x)}~~$$ Removing the extra spaces and colors: $$36 - x = 3(4 + x)$$ You are correct.
