i need to simplify this.

If expression was actually worded equal to zero the solution is as follows

-6(x+9)= 0

-6x + -6*9= 0 expand the left side

-6x + -54 = 0 calculate expressions inside left side

x + 9 =0 divide both sides by -6

x = -9 solution

CHECK: -6(x+9)= 0 @ x= -9 => -6(-9 + 9) = 0 correct because -9 +9 = 0 & -6*0=0
