# How do you solve −2(x − 3) = −6?

Mar 13, 2018

$x = 6$

#### Explanation:

Assuming you mean solving this for $x$, you would first divide both sides of the equation by $- 2$, leaving

$\left(x - 3\right) = 3$

Then you would add $3$ to both sides. Therefore

$x = 6$

color(magenta)(x=6

#### Explanation:

$- 2 \left(x - 3\right) = - 6$

$- 2 x + 6 = - 6$

$- 2 x = - 6 - 6$

$- 2 x = - 12$

$x = - \frac{12}{-} 2$

color(magenta)(x=6
