Solve for the variable in the equation 3(-2-3x)=-9x-4.

I'm having a hard time with this one. Whenever I check my work the numbers are close, but not correct.

  1. Distribute.
    -6-9x=-9x-4
    Get letters on one side and variables on the other.
    -9x=-9x+2
    When we move the -9x over it becomes 0x. There is no solution.
