Answer:

#x= 14#

Explanation:

We must isolate the #x# and we can do that by adding #46# to both sides.
#cancel(-46+46)+x=-32+46#

#x= 14#

Side Note: If you need to check your work you can take the value you found for #x# and plug it in into the equation like so:

#-46+14=-32#

#-32=-32#: This is a true statement so we know our answer is correct.
