# What is the solution to the equation 3x – 6 = –2x + 9?

Mar 2, 2018

$x = 3$

#### Explanation:

$3 x - 6 = - 2 x + 9$

$5 x = 15$ Added the $- 2 x$ on the right side to the $3 x$

$x = 3$ Now divide $5$ from the left side to the $15$ on the right side to isolate $x$.

Leaving you with the answer of being $3$. You can also check your work by plugging the number back into $x$ with the starting equation. They should be equal if your answer is correct.
