Please have patience. Sometimes responses could take more than a few minutes.

4x-(9-3x)= 8x-1

Distribute

4x-9+3x=8x-1

Combine like terms

7x-9=8x-1

Get the variables (letters) on one side and numbers on the other..

Add 9 to both sides.

7x=8x+8

Subtract 8x from both sides.

-x=8

Divide both sides by -1.

x=-8

4x-(9-3x)= 8x-1

4x - 9 + 3x = 8x - 1

7x -8x = 9 - 1

x = -8
