To find the opposite of 4x+6, find the opposite of each term.
2.5-3.5x=2-4x
Subtract 6 from 8 to get 2.
2.5-3.5x+4x=2
Add 4x to both sides.
2.5+0.5x=2
Combine -3.5x and 4x to get 0.5x.
0.5x=2-2.5
Subtract 2.5 from both sides.
0.5x=-0.5
Subtract 2.5 from 2 to get -0.5.
x=\frac{-0.5}{0.5}
Divide both sides by 0.5.
x=-1
