You can find the value of x by performing the math in sequence using PEMDAS rule:

From the question, there is no parentheses or exponents, only multiplication, addition and subtraction. Therefore, following PEMDAS rule, we'll

  1. handle all the multiplication first, then
  2. addition and subtraction from left to right.

#color(red)(4 xx 27) + color(red)(3 xx 34) - 94 = x# (perform multiplications)
#color(red)108 + color(red)102 - 94 = x# (add and subtract from left to right)
#116= x#
