2x+12=5x+8-x

This seems to be a continuing question.

The idea is to gather the x's on one side, and the constants on the other.

Subtract 2x from both sides.

subtract 8 from both sides.

You ought to have numbers on one side, and x's on the other. Simplify both sides by combining.

I get

4=2x

divide both sides by 2. You have solved for x.
