The first thing you should do is eliminate the parentheses by distributing the factor outside, as follows:
18x + 9 -2x+6=0
Next, collect like terms and simplify:
Now, Subtract 15 from both sides to isolate the x term:
16x = -15
Finally, divide both sides by 16:
(16x)/16 = -15/16
x = -15/16
Hope this helps.
