$x = \frac{7}{12}$

#### Explanation:

$x - 19 = - 12 - 11 x$

Add $19$ to both sides to get
$x = 7 - 11 x$

Add $11 x$ to both sides to get
$12 x = 7$

Divide both sides by $12$ to get
$x = \frac{7}{12}$

Hope that helps!

$x = \frac{7}{12}$

#### Explanation:

The equation is $x - 19 = - 12 - 11 x$.

Move all like terms to one side; all the terms with $x$'s to one side and just numbers to the other.

$x - 19 = - 12 - 11 x \implies$

$x - 19 \textcolor{b l u e}{+ 19} \textcolor{red}{+ 11 x} = - 12 \textcolor{b l u e}{+ 19} - 11 x \textcolor{red}{+ 11 x} \implies$

$x \textcolor{red}{+ 11 x} = - 12 \textcolor{b l u e}{+ 19} \implies$

$12 x = 7 \implies$

$x = \frac{7}{12}$
