    I would start by multiplying both sides of the equation by 3x+9 and see what happens :)

    Multiply both the numerator and denominator of \(\Large {2 \over x + 3}\).That'll get you two like terms :)

    I don't find anything confusing here. \(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow \Large {x \over y} = {ax \over ay}}\) This is what I am doing here.

    I know, but this is one of the first units, I'm really, for some reason, having trouble with. Okay, you say, 'Multiply both numerator and denominator by 3*', Okay then what do I do?

    \[1/3x + 9 - 6 / x9\] ^^Don't know how to really format it, but the 6 and 9 is there.

    \(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow \Large {1 \over 3x+ 9} -{6 \over 3x + 9} = 2 }\) \(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow \Large {-5 \over 3x + 9} = 2 }\) Multiply both sides by 3x + 9 \(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow-5 = 2(3x+ 9) }\) \(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow -5 = 6x + 18 }\) \(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow -23 = 6x }\) \(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow x = {-23 \over 6} }\)
