D - try picking numbers

If x = 2, the left side = 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 (16), therefore n = 4... [n-2 = x]

Lets double check with x =3
8 + 8 + 8 + 8 (32); n = 5 [n-2 = x]

And since I'm only a minute in, lets try x = 4

16 + 16 + 16 + 16 (64); n = 6... [n-2 = x]

4*2^x=2^n

(2^2)*(2^x)=2^n

2^(x+2)=2^n

x+2=n

x=2-n
