    First you bring all the terms with x together.

    6x -2 = 4x + 13 So we want to bring 6x and 4x at one side together and the rest of terms together at another side. So, it will become 6x-4x = 13 +2

    You added 6x and 4x, look carefully. It's -4x so you need to subtract 4x from 6x

    Tip: Think of this process as reversing the order of operations. SO instead of PEMDAS do Sad Mep
