You asked:

Given \(3 x - 12 = 2\) evaluate the expression \(x - 6\).

MathBot Answer:

\[x - 6 = - \frac{4}{3}\]


\[\begin{aligned}3 x - 12 &= 2\\3 x &= 14\\x &= \frac{14}{3}\end{aligned}\]

By substituting this value into the expression, we find that: $$\begin{aligned}x - 6 &= -6 + \frac{14}{3}\\&= - \frac{4}{3}\end{aligned}$$
