`4x=2x+6`

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` `-2x`

`-----------`

`2x` `=` `0` `+` `6`

`2x = 6`

Then, isolate x.

`(2x)/2=6/2`

`x=3`

**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

then you plug it 3 in for x and you get 4*3=(2*3)+6

which equals 12=12
