If you add 9 to the left hand side of the equation it will cancel the -9, leaving just x on the left hand side. If you add 9 to the right hand side of the equation you get what? 39 + 9 = ?

Correct. So we solved it as follows: x - 9 = 39 Adding 9 to both sides gives: x - 9 + 9 = 39 + 9 Simplifying we get: x = 48

Remember, whatever operation you do to one side of an equation you must also do to the other side. This keeps the equation balanced. I added 9 to both sides to eliminate the -9 and get x by itself on the left hand side.
