The answer is below.

Work Step by Step

First, you need to use the distributive property to simplify the expression. Next, you need to get all of the terms with an x in them on one side of the equation and all of the terms that are just numbers on the other other side of the equations. Then, you combine like terms. Finally, you would divide both sides of the equation by whatever coefficient is still in front of x in order to solve.
