    x = 8/9

    Step-by-step explanation:

    5x + 2 (x - 3) = - 2 (x - 1)

    Distribute on both sides.

    5x + 2x - 6 = - 2x + 2

    Combine like terms on the left side.

    7x - 6 = - 2x + 2

    Add 2x to both sides.

    9x - 6 = 2

    Add 6 to both sides.

    9x = 8

    Divide both sides by 9.

    x = 8/9
