# How do you solve 3x-4=2x+8-5x?

Aug 1, 2018

$x = 2$

#### Explanation:

We can combine our right side like terms to get

$3 x - 4 = - 3 x + 8$

Next, let's get our variables on the left by adding $3 x$ to both sides. We now have

$6 x - 4 = 8$

Next, to get our constants on the right, we can add $4$ to both sides to get

$6 x = 12$

Lastly, we can divide both sides by $6$ to get

$x = 2$

Hope this helps!
