Okay, you're gonna want to get the variables all on one side. This is what I would do:

2x-6=5x+18 (subtract the two from both sides)
-6=3x+18 (subtract the 18 from both sides)
-24=3x (Than divide both sides by three)
-8=x

Yeah I know.. Kind of. Razz

But what's confusing me is how do you know what to add/subtract and where.
And there are so many different ways to get the answer I keep mixing up steps with a different way. ._.

Ahaha, I understand you're confusion Razz

As for knowing where to add and subtract, I try to keep my x's positive and then worry about the other numbers later. I don't know if that helps at all Razz Just wait until you get to imaginary numbers. XD

Wow o.o That's a weird teacher o.o
I usually add/subtract the number from the ledt, moving it to the right, then add/subtract the variable on the right, moving it to the left (ex. 5x=20)
If the x is negative, then divide by -1 (basically switching the side the negative is on, ex. -x=4, x=-4)
