Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{x6}{3}+\frac{x+9}{9}=x+4\]before we begin, is that right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok here we go \[\frac{x6}{3}+\frac{x+9}{9}=x+4\] \[9\times \left(\frac{x6}{3}+\frac{x+9}{9}\right)=(x+4)\times 9\] \[3(x6)+x+9=9x+36\] this is the only hard part, now remove the parentheses using the distributive law, combine like terms and then solve would you like me to continue?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[3(x6)+x+9=9x+36\] remove parentheses get \[3x+18+x+9=9x+36\] combine like terms get \[2x+27=9x+36\] add \(2x\) to both sides get \[27=11x+36\] subtract \(36\) get \[9=11x\] divide by \(11\) \[\frac{9}{11}=x\]
