Answer:

#x=13/2#

Explanation:

To solve, isolate the x-term on the left side of the equation and move numeric terms to the right.

To achieve this subtract 11 from both sides.

#4x+cancel(11)color(red)cancel(-11)=37color(red)"-11"rArr4x=26#

now divide both sides by 4

#(cancel(4)^1 x)/cancel(4)^1=cancel(26)^(13)/cancel(4)^2#

#rArrx=13/2#
