^{2 }= 9. Since x = 1/3...

Id really appreciate if someone knew the answerðŸ˜–

Tutors, sign in to answer this question.

Lani, you need to go to your teacher for help and/or find a tutor. We can't do all of your hw for you.

3x - 4 = -3

3x - 4 + 4 = -3 + 4

3x = 1

3x/3 = 1/3

x = 1/3

You are already given that 3x - 4 = -3, so (-3)^{2 }= 9. Since x = 1/3...

9 + 6(1/3) - 8 = 9 + 2 - 8 = 3

Given: 3x-4 = -3

That means: 6x-8 = -6

So, (-3)^{2}-6 = 9-6 = **3 ** [note: not all problems will have such easy substitution]

First, solve for x in

3x - 4 = -3.

(Can you do that?)

Then substitute the result into

(3x - 4)^{2} + 6x - 8,

and you will have your answer.
