You would solve this equation by doing 2x-18=3x-18. You than have to move the numbers with exponents to the same side. When you move a number "over" the equals sign you change its sign. which would make the answer just 0 = 5x x = 0
first of all, distribute the 2 to (x-9) on the left side and the 3 to (x-6) on the right side. 2x-18=3x-18, then solve for x, you subtract 2x to both sides, you get -18=x-18, the plus 18 on both sides, you get x=0!
