#6x +18#


You would be simplifying rather than solving because this is an expression and not an equation.

Use the distributive law to multiply the 6 outside the bracket by each term inside the bracket.

#6(x + 3) = 6x +18#

The terms are unlike so cannot be added together.
This is the final anwer.
