6-3x=-2x

Jul 22nd, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

6 - 3x = -2x

step 1. Add 3x to both sides

6 - 3x + 3x = -2x + 3x

step 2.  simplify both sides

6 = 1x

So x=6

double check by substituting 6 for x

6 - 3 (6) = -2 (6)

6 - 18 = -12

-12 = -12 CHECKS OUT, so x=6 is correct


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
