could someone show me the steps for solving this:
3x+24=9(x+4)

• help -

What if you show me the steps you think one should do. I will gladly critique your work.

• help -

3x+24=9(x+4)

3x + 24 = 9x + 36
3x - 9x = 36 - 24
-6x = 12
x = -2

Check this answer by substituting -2 for x in your problem.

Thank you very much I hope I can remember the foil method
