Simplifying
x + 2 + 2 + 5x = 19 + x + 5

Reorder the terms:
2 + 2 + x + 5x = 19 + x + 5

Combine like terms: 2 + 2 = 4
4 + x + 5x = 19 + x + 5

Combine like terms: x + 5x = 6x
4 + 6x = 19 + x + 5

Reorder the terms:
4 + 6x = 19 + 5 + x

Combine like terms: 19 + 5 = 24
4 + 6x = 24 + x

Solving
4 + 6x = 24 + x

Solving for variable 'x'.

Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right.

Add '-1x' to each side of the equation.
4 + 6x + -1x = 24 + x + -1x

Combine like terms: 6x + -1x = 5x
4 + 5x = 24 + x + -1x

Combine like terms: x + -1x = 0
4 + 5x = 24 + 0
4 + 5x = 24

Add '-4' to each side of the equation.
4 + -4 + 5x = 24 + -4

Combine like terms: 4 + -4 = 0
0 + 5x = 24 + -4
5x = 24 + -4

Combine like terms: 24 + -4 = 20
5x = 20

Divide each side by '5'.
x = 4

Simplifying
x = 4
