Place both 'x's in one side and all the constants on another side...

#### Explanation:

You can subtract 4x on both sides of the equation:

You end up with:

Now place all constants on the other side, which is 8 in this case. By adding 8 on both sides:

Finally, divide both sides by 2 to remove the number 2 being multiplied on the x:

Similarly, you could see that 2 of x equals 8, so 1 of x should equal half of that, which is 4.
