The answer is $x$ =13.

#### Explanation:

This is just simple algebra. There are only two steps to this problem.
1. Add 20 to both sides of the equation. This will cancel the 20 from the left side and create 52 on the right side.
2. Divide both sides by 4. This will create $x$ on the left side by itself and 13 on the right side.
