Answer:

#x= 0 #

Explanation:

We can expand #-1(3x+11) = -3x - 11 #

#=> 4x - 3x - 11 = -11 #

Add 11 to both sides...

#=> 4x - 3x - 11 + 11 = -11 + 11 #

#=> 4x-3x + 0 = 0 #

we know #4x-3x = x #

Answer:

x = 0

Explanation:

You have to factor the equation and make the left side into #4x - 3x -11# since you factored the negative sign and #4x - 3x - 11 = x - 11# because you have to add like terms. Then we add 11 to each side so the whole equation will be #x-11=-11#. The final equation is #x=0#.
