  • There is no solution to that equation. Watch:

    3(-2-3x)=-9x-4
    -6-9x=-9x-4
    -6-4=-9x+9x
    -2=0

    No solution.

  • Sorry the last two parts of that were supposed to be this:

    -6+4=-9x+9x
    -2=0

    Still no solution.

  • -6-9x=-9x-4
    add 4 to both sides
    -2-9x=-9x
    add -9x to both sides
    -2=0

    like jessflynn got.... lol i wonder if I'm right!!!

  • Distribute:

    Multiply what's inside the parenthesis by three -6-9x=-9x-4

    Transpose:

    Move the variable to one side and the number to the other -6+4=-9x+9x

    Simplify:

    Add/subtract the variables to like variables and numbers to numbers -2=0
