An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

4x-(6x+11)= 5

First we will open the brackets.

==. 4x -6x -11 = 5

Now we will combine like terms.

==> -2x -11 = 5

Now we will add 11 to both sides.

==> -2x = 5+ 11

==> -2x = 16

Now we will divide by -2.

==> x = 16/-2 = -8

Then, the answer is : x = -8
