Looking at this problem, we see what both sides of the equation have in common. Both sides add 7 to the multiplication problems of 6x and 3x. We are told that both sides of this equation are equal. The way this problem is written x cannot be the same number on both sides. The answer should be 7+(6x3) = (3x6)+7 which comes to 25 on both sides of the equation.
