$\implies x = - 4$

#### Explanation:

$7 \left(2 x + 5\right) = 4 x - 9 - x$

$\left(7\right) \left(2 x\right) + \left(7\right) \left(5\right) = 3 x - 9$

$14 x + 35 = 3 x - 9$

We subtract $35$ from both sides

$14 x = 3 x - 44$

We subtract $3 x$ from both sides

$11 x = - 44$

We divide both sides by $11$

$\implies x = - 4$
