Equation 9(2x18) = 36
18 162 = 36
18 x 162 =36
+ 162 + 162
18 x = 198
18x 198
18 =18

umm,
i actually got x=4.
i will show you how i did it..
9(2x18)=36
9(2x18+18)=36+18
9(2x)=54 
Both answers are wrong.
I get 2x 18 = 4
2x = 22
x = 11 
thanks my teacher wants me to show all of my work is any part of what I did right thanks for the help

Your first step should have been
18 x  162 = 36
After getting the first step wrong, what you do on the other steps doesn't matter. It's over.
