# How do you solve for x: 12 = -4(-6x-3) ?

Sep 6, 2016

#### Answer:

$x = 0$

#### Explanation:

We have: $12 = - 4 \left(- 6 x - 3\right)$

Let's begin by expanding parentheses $12 = 18 x + 12$:

Then, let's subtract $12$ from both sides of the equation:

$\implies 18 x = 0$

We can now solve for $x$ by dividing both sides by $18$:

$\implies x = 0$
