What value will make the equation
6(x+5)=3(x14) true?

6(x+5)=3(x14)
6x + 30 = 3x  42
3x = 42 + (30)
3x = 72
x = ? 
I understand that part but I'm just not sure when the question asks me what VALUE will make the equation TRUE will it be x=72? because I don't think that's what there asking me.

I 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.
