You would start by adding the 18 to the 2 to give you 20. then you would subtract x from the 6x to give you 5x. then your equation should be 5x=20, then you divide 20 by 5 and that give you 4. So x would equal 4. x=4

Answer:x=4

Step-by-step explanation:Step 1: subtract 1x from both sides. You should get 2=5x-18.

Step 2: add 18 to both sides to get 5x=20.

Step 3: simplify. you should get x=4
