It is conventional to just write x, instead of 1x, wheneve the coefficient of an algebraic variable is 1.
There is a mistake in what you did.
Let's take a look.
-6(x-3)-26 = -8
-6x +18 -26 = -8
(You got that far OK)
-6x - 8 = -8
-6x = 0
x = 0
One more thing with this problem if you can explain for me. how come in the forth step, it is -6x=0?
I added 8 to both sides of the equation, thus eliminating it.
how to solve this math problem x/3 - 8 = -2
