# How do you solve 9- 9x - 5- 3x = 7?

Apr 23, 2018

Move all the terms with $x$ to one side, and move the integers to the other side.

#### Explanation:

$9 - 9 x - 5 - 3 x = 7$

$9 - 5 - 7 = 9 x + 3 x$

$- 3 = 12 x$

$x = - \frac{1}{4}$

I think the answer's $x = 3.5 \mathmr{and} x = \frac{7}{2}$

#### Explanation:

in the equation you have to inverse the like terms i.e:
$- 5 \to 7$ which is $7 + 5$ after the sign has changed to -5,secondly the other like term is 9 which is -9 it is inversed and changed to$- 9 \to 12 i s 12 + 9$ answer is: $6 x = \frac{2}{6}$ after being divided by six which is the denominator. $x = 3.5$
