(4x-3/-x+9) = (-3/-2)

Please solve for x

Also it helps to write it out as fractions

I'm assuming this might be :

(4x-3)/ (-x+9) = (-3/-2)

(4x - 3) / ( -x + 9) = 3/2 multiply both sides by (-x + 9)

(4x - 3) = (3/2)(-x + 9) multiply both sides by 2 to get rid of the fraction

2(4x -3) = 3(-x + 9) simplify

8x - 6 = -3x + 27 subtract 27, 8x from both sides

-33 = -11x divide both sides by -11

3 = x
