Answer

$-13$

Work Step by Step

Distribute $-2$ to obtain: $1-12+2x=3x+2 \\-11+2x=3x+2$ Subtract $2x$ on both sides of the equation to obtain: $-11=x+2$ Subtract $2$ on both sides of the equation to obtain: $-13 = x$ Check: $1-2(6-(-13))=3(-13)+2 \\1-2(6+13)=-39+2 \\1-2(19)=-37 \\1-38=-37 \\-37=-37$
