Let's solve your equation step-by-step. −3(x+3)=−3(x+1)−5 Step 1: Simplify both sides of the equation. −3(x+3)=−3(x+1)−5 Simplify: Let's simplify step-by-step. −3(x+3)=−3(x+1)−5 (−3)(x)+(−3)(3)=(−3)(x)+(−3)(1)+−5(Distribute) −3x+−9=−3x+−3+−5 −3x−9=(−3x)+(−3+−5)(Combine Like Terms) −3x−9=−3x+−8 −3x−9=−3x−8 Step 2: Add 3x to both sides. −3x−9+3x=−3x−8+3x −9=−8 Step 3: Add 9 to both sides. −9+9=−8+9 0=1
