Answer:

#x=-19#

Explanation:

Let's start by distributing the #-4# on the left side and the #-3# on the right. We get

#-4x-4-3=-3x+12#

We can simplify the terms on the left to get

#-4x-7=-3x+12#

Adding #4x# to both sides, we get

#-7=x+12#

We can subtract #12# from both sides to get

#x=-19#

Hope this helps!
