$\frac{5}{6}$

#### Explanation:

This is an equation with constants ( just numbers ) and only 1 unknown (x), so it is solvable.

Collecting all the $x$ terms on one side of the equals sign and all the constants on the other side.

With add's or subtract's to move to the other side of the = change the sign giving:

We need the $- 3 x$ and the $- 19$ to change sides.

$11 x + 4 x + 3 x = - 4 + 19$

$18 x = 15$

To get rid of the 18 from $18 x$ turn it into 1 so that instead of $18 \times x$ we have $1 \times x$ which is just $x$

Divide both sides by 18

$\frac{18}{18} \times x = \frac{15}{18}$

$1 \times x = \frac{15 \div 3}{18 \div 3} = \frac{5}{6}$
