How do you solve 6x - 9 + 4 = 5x + 10x - 8?

$\frac{3}{11} \mathmr{and} 0. \overline{27}$

Explanation:

$6 x - 9 + 4 = 5 x + 10 x - 8$

First I would add them all up:

$6 x - 5 = 15 x - 8$

Then I would subtract $6 x$ for each side, a hi would cancel 6x. You

do this because you should not have two variables on both sides.

You should have one variable on one side.

This would result in $- 5 = 11 x - 8$

I would now add $8$ to both sides which cancels the $- 8$

It would look like this:

$3 = 11 x$

Divide each side by $11$

You can either leave it as a fraction of $\frac{3}{11}$ or turn it into a

decimal.

The decimal would be $0.27$ repeating
