what is the value of x

Hello Donovan,

To find the value of x first isolate the variable term on one side of the equation. To do this subtract 6 from both the side of the equation. Your equation will look like this

-3x + 6 - 6 = -9 - 6

Now the equation will become

-3x = -15

Next, divide both side by -3

(-3/-3)x = (-15/-3)

You'll get **x = 5 (answer)**

I hope this helps.
