5x -2(x-2) = 6 -2(-3x-3)
5x -2x +4 = 6 +6x +6 (use the distributive property)
3x + 4 = 6x + 12 (collect terms)
4 = 3x + 12 (subtract 3x from both sides to get all x on one side)
-8 = 3x (subtract 12 from both sides to get only x on one side)
-8/3 = x (divide both sides by 3 to get x by itself)

Check
5(-8/3) -2((-8/3)-2) = 6 - 2(-3(-8/3)-3)
-40/3 -2(-8/3-6/3) = 6 - 2(8-3)
-40/3 -2(-14/3) = 6 -2(5)
-40/3 + 28/3 = 6 - 10
-12/3 = -4 (yes)
