$x = 5$

#### Explanation:

Isolate the 3x term on the left side of the equation and place numeric values on the right side.

add 4 to both sides.

$3 x \cancel{- 4} \cancel{+ 4} = 11 + 4$

$\Rightarrow 3 x = 15$

To solve for x, divide both sides by 3.

$\frac{\cancel{3} x}{\cancel{3}} = \frac{15}{3}$

$\Rightarrow x = 5 \text{ is the solution}$
