To solve for x, bring together all the terms with x on one side of the equation. So move 2x to the left side.
`4x` `=` `2x` `+` `6`
`2x` `=` `0` `+` `6`
`2x = 6`
Then, isolate x.
Hence, the value of x in `4x=2x+6` is 3.

X is the variable.
you will subtract 2x from both sides getting 4x-2x=6
then you subtract 2x from 4x and get 2x=6
then you divde each side by to and you get x=3
