**Ms. Sue**, Monday, October 4, 2010 at 4:31pm6(x+5)=3(x-14)

6x + 30 = 3x - 42

3x = -42 + (-30)

3x = -72

x = -?

**Ms. Sue**, Monday, October 4, 2010 at 4:41pmI don't see what else the question is asking.

The equation is true when you find that x = -24.

Substitute -24 in the original equation to prove that it is the correct value of x.
