color(green)(x=2

Explanation:

$\textcolor{b l u e}{2} \left(x + 3\right) = 10$.

Here color(blue)(2  is multiplied with both the terms within the bracket.

$\textcolor{b l u e}{2} \times \left(x\right) + \textcolor{b l u e}{2} \times \left(3\right) = 10$

$2 x + 6 = 10$

$2 x = 10 - 6$

$2 x = 4$

$x = \frac{4}{2}$
