A polynomial is an expression that is combination of variables raise to some power whereas rational expression is a fraction whose numerator and denominator are polynomials.
A linear polynomial is a polynomial of degree one , the highest exponent of variable is one. These polynomial general type is $$\displaystyle{a}{x}+{b}={0}$$
The equation is $$\displaystyle{2}{x}+{1}+{2}{x}-{12}={0}$$. Convert the equation to standard form
$$\displaystyle{2}{x}+{1}+{2}{x}-{12}={0}$$
$$\displaystyle{4}{x}-{11}={0}$$
Now solve the standard equation for x
$$\displaystyle{4}{x}-{11}={0}$$
$$\displaystyle{4}{x}={11}$$
$$\displaystyle{x}={\frac{{{11}}}{{{4}}}}$$
Therefore, value of x is $$\displaystyle{\frac{{{11}}}{{{4}}}}$$.
