#### Explanation:

First, let's use the distributive property to simplify the equation a lot $\left(a \left(b + c\right) = a \cdot b + a \cdot c\right)$:

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

Next, we'll combine like terms:

$- 6 x - 5 = - 4 x + 6$

Next, let's add 5 to each side:

$- 6 x = - 4 x + 11$

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

$- 2 x = 11$

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

$x = - \frac{11}{2} = - 5.5$
