When you say "substitution", that usually means that you want to plug in a particular value of x. On the other hand, one can solve this equation for x, which is done below (just in case that's what you meant):
 
-5x + 4 = -2
       -5x = -6
          x = 6/5
 
The answer (if wanting to solve) is x = 6/5.
