Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03x3=15. You add 3 to each side. that should give you 3x=18. Then you divide each side by 3 and that should give you x=6. So the answer is A.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because what you do is move the 3 over to the 15 to leave 3x by itself then you do 15+3=18 then divide the 3x to 18
