Given equation:

  • -18 = 6(2 + x)

Step-by step solution;

Simplifying the distributive property;

⇒ -18 = (6 × 2) + (6 × x)  

Further simplifying the distributive property;

⇒ -18 = (12) + (6x)

Subtracting 12 to both sides of the equation;

⇒ -18 - 12 = (12) + (6x) - 12

Simplifying both sides of the equation;

⇒ -30 = (6x)

Dividing 6 to both sides of the equation;

⇒ -30/6 = (6x)/6

-5 = x

Therefore, the value of "x" is -5.
