To check your answer you can plug in what you got for x in the equation and see in both sides are equal. I went ahead and checked for you and let’s just say that x does not equal 1. You did the first step right, but when you got here (below) you added the three into the parenthesis correctly but I can’t say the same for the 4. I not quite sure what you did to get -1 but the correct equation after that step should have been 9x+18=28x-4.…

In order to simplify expressions, you must first begin with the distributive properties. You do this by removing the parentheses by applying multiplication across two or more terms within the parentheses. The next step would either be using the commutative property, or the associative property to combine like terms. Combining like terms in the equation is a step in breaking down the expression correctly. I will now demonstrate the use of real numbers in simplifying the three following expressions. I will show my mathematical steps on the left, while discussing the properties on the right.…
