x = 0

#### Explanation:

Just add the like terms together and the constants together.
Put the term containing the variable on left-hand side, and the term containing the constant part on the right-hand side. Now divide both sides by the coefficient of the term containing the variable to get your answer.

$4 x + 2 x + 2 - 1 = 1$

$6 x = 0$

$x = 0$
