You said                                2 - x  =  x - 2

Add 'x' to each side:            2       = 2x - 2

Add  2  to each side:          4        = 2x

Divide each side by  2:       2        = x

2−x=x−2

Simplify: 

2−x=x−2

2+−x=x+−2

−x+2=x−2

Subtract x from both sides.

−x+2−x=x−2−x

−2x+2=−2

 Subtract 2 from both sides.

−2x+2−2=−2−2  

−2x=−4

 Divide both sides by - 2

-2x/-2 = -2/-4

= 2.
