5x + 2(x - 3) = -2(x - 1)

5x + 2x - 6 = -2x + 2

7x - 6 = -2x + 2

7x + 2x = 2 + 6

9x = 8

x = 8/9

5x + 2x - 6 = -2x + 2

7x - 6 = -2x + 2

7x + 2x = 2 + 6

9x = 8

x = 8/9

6 - (3x + 10) + 4(2 - x) = 15

6 - 3x - 10 + 8 - 4x = 15

4 - 7x = 15

-7x = 15 - 4 = 11

x = -11/7

6 - 3x - 10 + 8 - 4x = 15

4 - 7x = 15

-7x = 15 - 4 = 11

x = -11/7

3(x + 2) = 12

3x + 6 = 12

3x = 12 - 6 = 6

x = 6/3 = 2

3x + 6 = 12

3x = 12 - 6 = 6

x = 6/3 = 2
