    3x-3=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.

    We're not supposed to give people answers... we're supposed to walk them to what they're supposed to get...

    I did walk them through it. But it also gave the answer. I taught them how to do it,

    Because 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
