**What is known?**

Equation

**What is unknown?**

Value of the variable

**Reasoning:**

In an equation values of left-hand side (LHS) and right-hand side (RHS) are equal. The two sides of the equation are balanced. We perform mathematical operations so that the balance is not disturbed.

**Steps:**

We have \(6x = 12,\) dividing expressions with \(6\) both sides

\[\begin{align}\frac{6x}{6}&=\frac{12}{6}\\x &= 2\end{align}\]
