Hi guys

I'm super confused I haven't done algebra since high school and need to help a kid out. can someone please show me step by step how to do the following:
`x           x+4           2                      2x  -  2--     +   -----    -    ---        =      -   ---------2            3             1                           6I've got:3x + 2x +  8 - 12                   -2x + 2-------------------       =      --------------           6                             6            7x              =          6`
