Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, that makes sence(: Soo, once I get 3x + 9 = 3x + 3  5, what would I do next? Thats where I get lost.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Personally i would STOP and analyze that question, and realize the answer right there but we combine like terms 3x  9 = 3x  8 add 8 to each side 3x  1 = 3x then add 3x to each side 1 = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1why i said we should analyze the question is because we can already see that the answer will be equal to 0 because the 3x's will cancel each other.
