How do you solve for x in 4/9( x + 3 ) = g?

 color(green)(x = (9g-12)/4

Explanation:

$\textcolor{g r e e n}{\frac{4}{9}} \left(x + 3\right) = g$

 ( x +3 ) = g * color(green)( (9 / 4)

$\textcolor{b l u e}{x} + 3 = \frac{9 g}{4}$

Isolating $\textcolor{b l u e}{x}$

$\textcolor{b l u e}{x} = \frac{9 g}{4} - 3$

$\textcolor{b l u e}{x} = \frac{9 g}{4} - \frac{12}{4}$

 color(blue)(x = (9g-12)/4
