How do you solve 2( x - 4) - ( 4x + 3) = - 3( x + 3)?

Answer 1

$x = 2$

Refer to the explanation for the process.

#### Explanation:

Solve:

$2 \left(x - 4\right) - \left(4 x + 3\right) = - 3 \left(x + 3\right)$

Expand.

$2 x - 8 - 4 x - 3 = - 3 x - 9$

Add $3 x$ to both sides.

$3 x + 2 x - 8 - 4 x - 3 = - 9$

Simplify.

$5 x - 4 x - 8 - 3 = - 9$

$x - 11 = - 9$

Add $11$ to both sides.

$x = - 9 + 11$

Simplify.

$x = 2$
