See a solution process below

#### Explanation:

Step 1) Subtract $\textcolor{red}{452}$ from each side of the equation to isolate the $x$ term while keeping the equation balanced:

$4 x + 452 - \textcolor{red}{452} = 7000 - \textcolor{red}{452}$

$4 x + 0 = 6548$

$4 x = 6548$

Step 2) Divide each side of the equation by $\textcolor{red}{4}$ to solve for $x$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$\frac{4 x}{\textcolor{red}{4}} = \frac{6548}{\textcolor{red}{4}}$

$\frac{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{4}}} x}{\cancel{\textcolor{red}{4}}} = 1637$

$x = 1637$
