Explanation:

First, let's use the distributive property to simplify the equation a lot #(a(b+c)=a*b+a*c)#:

#12x+6-12x+9-6x-10=-4x+3+3#

Next, we'll combine like terms:

#-6x-5=-4x+6#

Next, let's add 5 to each side:

#-6x=-4x+11#

Next, let's add 4x to each side:

#-2x=11#

Finally, let's divide each side by -2 to get our answer:

#x=-11/2=-5.5#
