I would first get rid of the fractions by multiplying everything by 11x (the denominator):

11x(6/11x + 4 = 2/11x + 16) giving us

6 + 44x = 2 + 176x see how much easier this looks now :) Now bring the 176x and 6 over to their opposite sides (easy way to do this is think *176x is positive on the right, so its negative on the left... just move it over and flip
the sign :)*

-132x = -4 so x = 4/132 = 1/33

FINAL ANSWER x = 1/33

6/11x+4=2/11x+16 simplify.... 4/11x=12 4=132x x=.030303
