I'll do the first one.

3x + 15 = 0

3x = -15

x = -5

I'll be glad to check your work for the second problem.

2. 6x + 18 =0

6x/6 = 18/6

x = 3??

x = -3

You're on the right track, Good job!

Almost right.

But you forgot to subtract 18 from the right side of the equation.

6x + 18 =0

6x/6 = -18/6

x = -3

To check it, substitute -3 for x.

6(-3) + 18 = 0

-18 + 18 = 0

That's it!
