#2**0 **

3(x-5)=6

You distribute the 3 and get 3x-15=6

3x-15=6

Move the 15 over by adding 15 to -15 and 15 to 6 BECAUSE you need to get the x to one side. You get 3x=21

3x=21

You have to get x alone, so divide x by 3 and 21 and get x=7

THE ANSWER IS: **x=7**

Remember- anything you do to one side you have to do to the other
