Distribute the 9 and 2 into their respective groups.

9x-36-7x=6x-4

Combine like terms

-36+4=4x

-32=4x

Divide 4 on both sides to isolate x.

-8=x or **x=-8**

9 ( x - 4 ) -7x = 2 ( 3x - 2 )

To solve this equation, first distribute

By distributing the equation should look like

**9x - 36 - 7x = 6x - 4 **now combine the like terms

By combining the like terms, your equation should look like

**2x - 36 = 6x - 4 **now subtract 2 from both sides

By subtraction, your equation should look like

**-36 = 4x - 4 **now add 4 on both sides

By adding 4 on both sides, your equation should look like

**-32 = 4x **now divide 4 on both sides

By dividing, your equation should be

**-8 = x **which is your answer

9(x-4)-7x = 2(3x-2)

follow PEMDAS and do the parenthesis first by distributing the numbers in front of them:

9x - 36 - 7x = 6x - 4

now combine liketerms if there are any:

9x - 7x -36 = 6x - 4

2x - 36 = 6x - 4

move like terms to the same side

-36 + 4 = 6x -2x

-32 = 4x

divide by 4 to get x alone

-32 / 4 = 4x/4

-8 = x

9(x-4)-7x = 2(3x-2)

First using PEMDAS distribute x into the equation

9x-36-7x=6x-4

Move the variables on one side

9x-7x-6x=36-4

-4x=32

Divide by -4

x=-8

9(x-4)-7x = 2(3x-2)

follow PEMDAS

9X-36-7x = 6x-4

2x-36=6x-4

-36+4=4x

-32=4x

-8=x
