# Chapter 2 - Solving Equations - 2-2 Solving Two-Step Equations - Lesson Check: 4

$x=-13$

#### Work Step by Step

We need to get the x alone. Thus, we cancel out the subtraction by adding 4 on both sides. This leaves us with the equation $-x=13$. In order to cancel out multiplication, we use division, so we divide both sides by -1 to get that $x=-13$. We plug -13 in for x and confirm that our answer is, indeed, correct.
