Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, first you would add either 9 or 6 to both sides to combine like terms. I chose 6.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.06+3x=9 Add 6 to both sides so "3x" will be by itself. 3x=3 Then divide by 3 on both sides so x will be by itself. x=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x/5 + 9 = 4 (5) x/5 + (5)9 = (5)4 (multiply everything by five to get rid of the fraction) x + 45 = 20 (subtract 45 from each side to get x by itself) x + 45  45 = 20  45 x = 20  45 x =  25 check... x/5 + 9 = 4  25/5 + 9 = 4  5 + 9 = 4 4 = 4 (correct) ANSWER : x =  25
