First of all we have : \(5x + 6 = 2x 3\) Transpose (3) to Left hand side, do you know how ?

see : I have 5x +6 = 2x 3, i want to remove 3 from right hand side so I would add 3 both sides: \(5x + 6 + 3 = 2x  3+3\) Can you tell me what is 3+3?

Now we have : \(5x + 6 +3 = 2x \) \(5x + 9 = 2x\) Now we will remove 5x from Left hand side, by subtracting 5x both sides.

I have 5x + 9 = 2x Now I would subtract 5x both sides \(\color{blue}{(5x+9)}  \color{red}{5x} = \color{blue}{2x}  \color{red}{5x}\) getting it?

5x + 9  5x = 2x  5x (combine like terms) 9 =  3x (now divide by 3) 9/3 = 3x/3 (combine like terms) 3 = x check.. 5x + 9  5x = 2x  5x 5(3) +9  5(3) = 2(3)  5(3) 15 + 9 + 15 =  6 + 15 9 = 9 (correct) x =  3 :)
