    \[4x-36\] is not an equation, because there is no equal sign there right?

    that you can solve by dividing \(-36\) by \(4\)

    if four times your number is \(-36\) then your number is \(-\frac{36}{4}\)

    a) subtract \(4x\) from both sides you need the x's on one side of the equal sign

    \[2x+12=-18\\ 2x+12-12=-18-12\\ 2x=-18-12\] your job is to compute \(-18-12\)
