To solve the equation 5x + 4 = -2(x + 3), first distribute the -2 across the parentheses, then combine like terms, and isolate the variable x. The steps are as follows:

- Distribute the -2: 5x + 4 = -2x - 6
- Combine like terms: 5x + 2x + 4 = -6
- Combine like terms: 7x + 4 = -6
- Subtract 4 from both sides: 7x = -10
- Divide both sides by 7: x = -10/7

So, the solution to the equation is x = -10/7.
