What is the value of x innthe equation 1.5(x+4)-3=4.5(x-2)

$$~~~~~~1.5(x+4)-3 = 4.5(x-2)\\\\\implies 15(x+4) -30 =45(x-2)~~~~~~~~;[\text{Multiply both sides by 10]}\\\\\implies 3(x+4)-6=9(x-2)~~~~~~~~~~;[\text{Divide both sides by 5]}\\\\\implies 3x+12-6=9x-18\\\\\implies 3x+6=9x-18\\\\\implies 9x-3x = 18+6\\\\\implies 6x = 24\\\\\implies x = \dfrac{24}6\\\\\implies x =4$$
