GIVEN: 5x + 32 = 4 - 2x
Add 2x to both sides to get: 7x + 32 = 4
Subtract 32 from both sides to get: 7x = -28
Divide both sides by 7 to get: x = -28/7 = -4

Answer: A

Cheers,
Brent

Another approach is to test the answer choices

A. -4
Replace x with -4 to get: 5(-4) + 32 = 4 - 2(-4)
Simplify: (-20) + 32 = 4 - (-8)
Simplify: 12 = 12
PERFECT!!

Answer: A

Brent
