Answer

x = $\frac{11}{12}$

Work Step by Step

4(3x - 2) = -1 + 4 Apply distributive property: 4(3x) + 4(-2) = -1 + 4 Simplify: 12x - 8 = 3 Add 8 to both sides: 12x = 11 Divide both sides by 12: x = $\frac{11}{12}$ Check with substitution: 4(3($\frac{11}{12}$) - 2) = -1 + 4 4($\frac{11}{4}$ - 2) = 3 4($\frac{3}{4}$) = 3 3 = 3
