could someone show me the steps for solving this:
3x+24=9(x+4)

What if you show me the steps you think one should do. I will gladly critique your work.

3x+24=9(x+4)
3x + 24 = 9x + 36
3x  9x = 36  24
6x = 12
x = 2
Check this answer by substituting 2 for x in your problem. 
Thank you very much I hope I can remember the foil method
