    -24 - 4 (x + 2) = 4x Use the Distributive Property

    -24 - 4x - 8 = 4x Combine like terms (-24 and - 8)

    -32 - 4x = 4x Add 4x to both sides

    -32 = 8x Divide both sides by 8

    -4 = x Switch the sides to make it easier to read

    x = - 4

    -24 - 4x - 8 = 4x

    -24 - 8 = 4x+4x

    -32=8x

    -32/8 = 8x/8

    -4 = x
