    x = - 5

    Step-by-step explanation:

    -2x+2 (5x+18) = -4

    The first thing you would have to do is distribute the positive 2 with 5x and 18 so that means you would multiply those two number inside the parenthesis.

    -2x + 10x + 36=-4 2 (5x) = 10x 2 (18) = 36

    Now you combined like terms on the other side of the - 4. So since - 2x and 10x are like terms because of the variables you would do - 2x+10x=8x. So now your equation is 8x+36=-4. So now you want you x by itself so you would subtract 36 on both sides so positive 36 subtracted by 36 is 0 now you subtract 36 to - 4 so that equals - 40 because you did - 4-36=-40. So now you have 8x=-40 so now you divide both sides by 8x so - 40/8=-5

    x=-5
