12x-6=9x

  • algebra -

    12x-6=9x

    12x - 9x = 6

    3x = 6
    x = ?

  • algebra -

    12x - 6 = 9x

    Subtract 9x from both sides.

    3x -6 = 0

    3x = 6

    I assume you can carry on from there.

    12x6=9x8

  • algebra -

    12x-6=9x

    first step: subtract x-variables to one-side of the equation

    -6=-3x

    second step: divide -3 to the other side to get the value of x

    x=2 (final answer)

    Lastly, you can check your answer of x=2 by plugging it into the original equation to see if both sides of the equation are equal.

    12(2)-6=9(2)
    18=18
    Therefore x=2 is correct

    x=2

    5x -3 = 11 + 12x combine like figures add 3 to both sides to remove the 3 5x= 14+ 12x Now I get confused. If I remove the 12x I have to subtract 12x from 5x which gives me an answer of -7x=14 would the correct answer thus be x= -2?
