Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2add 2x to both sides of the equation: 3x + 2x  6 = 2x + 2x + 9 5x  6 = 9 add 6 to both sides 5x  6 + 6 = 9 + 6 5x = 15 x = 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this one..I can help you... 3x – 6 = –2x + 9 transfer to other side so 3x+2x=6+9 then it is 5x=15 therefore x=3 got it?
