Answer:

You can do the opposite of the order of operations.

Explanation:

Start with the multiplication, instead of multiplying the -19, divided it from -304, giving you 16.
Now you have -3+x, this can be switched around to x-3.
Instead of subtracting the 3, add it to the other side,
giving you 19.
This results in x=19
