6x+6=4x+12
Since 4x contains the variable to solve for, move it to the left-hand side of the equation by subtracting 4x from both sides.
6x+6-4x=12
Since 6x and -4x are like terms, add -4x to 6x to get 2x.
2x+6=12
Since 6 does not contain the variable to solve for, move it to the right-hand side of the equation by subtracting 6 from both sides.
2x=-6+12
Add 12 to -6 to get 6.
2x=6
Divide each term in the equation by 2.
(2x)/(2)=(6)/(2)
Simplify the left-hand side of the equation by canceling the common factors.
x=(6)/(2)
Simplify the right-hand side of the equation by simplifying each term.
x=3
Good Luck
