    q = 9

    Step-by-step explanation:

    5 + 3 (q - 4) = 2 (q + 1)

    To solve, you need to get q by itself on one side.

    5 + 3q - 12 = 2q + 2 - - - distribute the multipliers next to the parenthesis

    3q - 7 = 2q + 2 - - - combine like terms

    q - 7 = 2 - - - subtract 2q from both sides

    q = 9 - - - add 7 to both sides
