subtract 3x+2 from both sides and you have

4x+2 -3x-2 = 3x+9 -3x-2

x = 7

4x+2=3x+9

Subtract 2 from both sides of the equation.

4x = 3x + 7

Subtract 3x from both sides

x = 7

4x+2=3x+9

Move 3x to the other side so it will become -3x ( 4x-3x) same with the constant number ( 9-2) . Just combine the constant and the number that has coefficient.

Solution: 4x+2= 3x+9

4x-3x=9-2

X=7
