Multiply  the portion in brackets and the equation becomes  3-2x-6+2=1
Move thewhole numbers to the right side of the equation,
Change the sign and now it becomes   -2x=1-3+6-2
Add the rt. side of eqtion. and it becomes   -2x=2
Mult both sides by -1  then eqtion       2x=-2
divide both sidesby 2   then               x=-1
