### Subject: Pre-Algebra

Solve for x: 4 +2x = 34

x = 15. One would begin by subtracting 4 from both sides of the equation, which would result in the equation 2x = 30. To continue, we would need to balance the equation by dividing each side by 2, which would give the answer x = 15. To check, we can substitute 15 back into the equation, which would show 4 + 2(15) = 4 + 30 = 34.
