Answer:

#3/11 or 0.bar27#

Explanation:

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

First I would add them all up:

#6x - 5 = 15x - 8#

Then I would subtract #6x# 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 = 11x - 8#

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

It would look like this:

#3 = 11x#

Divide each side by #11#

You can either leave it as a fraction of #3/11# or turn it into a

decimal.

The decimal would be #0.27# repeating
