6-2x=6x-10x+14

I got x=-2 is this correct? if not please let me know which step I missed.. thank you

• algebra -

Isolate the variable x onto one side of the equation:

6-2x = 6x-10x+14
-2x = 6x-10x+8 (subtract 6 from both sides)
-2x = -4x+8 (add 6x and -10x)
2x = 8 (add 4x to both sides)
x = 4 (divide each side by 2)
