# Hossein's Responses in WyzAnt Answers

#### How do you solve this equation? 3(x-9)=3

Im confused. I got the answer x=10 but its asking whats an equivalent equation for it and the choices are: 3x–9=3 x–9=1, x–9=9, and 3x–9=9

+ more- less
Asked by Juliet from Valley Stream, NY

Hi Juliet,

You could multiply the brackets out as Svetlana did above or you divide both sides of the equation by 3 (or multiply both by 1/3)  and you get the answer: x-9=1 is an equivalent equation. Remember equations are like seesaws: what you do to one side you need to do to the other to keep it equal.

You can then add 9 to both sides to isolate x and you get the same answer as you did in the first place: x=10.
