I found $x = - 6$

#### Explanation:

Take all the term with $x$ to the left and all the numbers without $x$ to the right remembering that if you move across the $=$ sign you need to change sign:
$2 x - \frac{2}{3} x = - 4 - 4$
do the calculations on both sides:
$\frac{6 - 2}{3} x = - 8$
$\frac{4}{3} x = - 8$

Take the$\frac{4}{3}$ to the right dividing:

$x = - \frac{8}{\frac{4}{3}}$
Rearranging:
$x = - 8 \cdot \frac{3}{4} = - 2 \cdot 3 = - 6$
