    First you need to combine like terms.

    3x+2x= 6x

    -1+4=3

    SO the answer will be,

    6x+3.

    Note that in this equation, you are solving for x.

    The first step i would take is “isolating the x”. To do so, add 1 to both sides, and subtract 2x from both sides

    3x (-2x) – 1 (+1) = 2x (-2x) + 4 (+1)

    3x – 2x = 4 + 1

    x = 5

    hope this helps
