Answer:

# x = 13/6 #

Explanation:

#3x−color(blue)(2)(2x+3)−4=color(green)(5)(x−3)−8#

#3x−color(blue)(2) * (2x) + color(blue)((-2)) * (3) − 4= color(green)(5) * (x) + color(green)(5) * (−3)−8#

#3x− 4x - 6 − 4= 5x -15 − 8#

# - x - 6 − 4= 5x -23#

# - x - 10= 5x -23#

# - 10 + 23= 5x + x #

# 13= 6x #

# x = 13/6 #
