# How do you solve 3( 2x - 10) - \frac { 1} { 3} ( 6x + 9) = - 1?

$x = 8$

#### Explanation:

$3 \left(2 x - 10\right) - \frac{1}{3} \left(6 x + 9\right) = - 1$

$3 \times 2 x - 3 \times 10 - \frac{1}{3} \times 6 x - \frac{1}{3} \times 9 = - 1$

$6 x - 30 - 2 x - 3 = - 1$

$\left(6 x - 2 x\right) = 30 + 3 - 1$

$4 x = 32$

$\frac{4 x}{4} = \frac{32}{4}$

$x = 8$
