The correct answer for this would be -10

Use distributive property

4x + 8 = 2x - 12

Add 12 to both sides

4x + 20 = 2x

Subtract 4x to both sides

20 = -2x

Divide by -2, x = -10

The answer is C. -10

4x + 8 = 2x - 12

Add 12 to both sides

4x + 20 = 2x

Subtract 4x to both sides

20 = -2x

Divide by -2, x = -10

The answer is C. -10
