#### Explanation:

First, combine the like terms on the right side:

#7 = color(red)2 - color(red)(3) + 4x#

#7 = -1 + 4x#

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Next, add

#7 + color(blue)1 = -1 + 4x + color(blue)1#

#7 + color(blue)1 = cancel(-1) + 4x + cancelcolor(blue)1#

#8 = 4x#

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Finally, divide both sides by

#8/color(orange)4 = (4x)/color(orange)4#

#8/color(orange)4 = (cancel4x)/cancelcolor(orange)4#

#2 = x#
