#### Answer

The answer is 4

#### Work Step by Step

$ 2(x-5) = 2-x $
Distribute the 2 on the left side so you multiply x by 2 and -5 by 2
$ 2x-10 = 2-x $
Collecting like terms on the same side (move the x variable on left side and constant on right side)
$ 2x+x = 2+10 $
Combine like terms
$ 3x = 12 $
Isolate x by dividing 3 from both sides
$ \frac{3x }{3}= \frac{12}{3} $
Simplify
x= 4
Therefore the solution is 4
