    x = - 3/2 or - 1.5

    Step-by-step explanation:

    You have to get X on one side by itself.

    2x + 4 - 7x + 9x = - 2

    Subtract the 4

    2x - 7x + 9x = - 6

    Combine like terms

    -5x + 9x = - 6

    Combine like terms

    4x = - 6

    Divide by 4

    x = - 6/4

    Simplify

    x = - 3/2 or - 1.5
