#### Answer

Simplify the left side by distributing $3$ to each term of $(x-2)$.

#### Work Step by Step

The left side of the given equation is not yet simplified.
To solve this equation, the left side must first be simplified by distributing $3$ to obtain:
$7+3x-6=2x+10
\\3x+1=2x+20$
Thus, the first step in solving the given equation is to simplify the left side by distributing $3$ to each term of $x-2$..
