Let x be the number. The product of 9 and the number is: 9x
Three times that number is 3x 12 less than three times that number is 3x - 12
9x=3x-12 6x=-12 x=-2

Your task: To solve the equation: 9x = 3x - 12 @ShadowCain
9x = 3x - 12 = -2
>> 9x = 3x - 12 = -2 You lost the variable x. |dw:1443905024059:dw|
@ShadowCain Do you agree?
That's what I meant, I just didn't put x = -2 But the answer was right, right?
Correct.
thanks
