No Solution

#### Explanation:

To solve $7 - 3 x = x - 4 \left(2 + x\right)$

Begin by distributing the $4$

$7 - 3 x = x - 8 - 4 x$

Combine like terms

$7 - 3 x = - 3 x - 8$

Combine the variables and constants on opposite sides of the equal sign

$7 + 8 \cancel{- 3 x} \cancel{+ 3} = - 3 x + 3 x \cancel{- 8} \cancel{+ 8}$

$15 = 0 x$
