You do not need to work out what x is!

If    7X + 3 = 5X – 7, evaluate:   4 + 2X – 2.

evaluate:     4+2X-2 = 2X+2

7X+3=5X-7

2X+2+1=-7

2X+2=-8

2x=-10

x=-5

4+2x-2=2+2x=2+2*(-5)=2-10=-8

7x+3=5x-7

3+(-7) = -4

7x-5x=2x

2x=-4

x=-2

$${\mathtt{4}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{\mathtt{2}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}\left(-{\mathtt{2}}\right){\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{2}} = -{\mathtt{2}}$$
