Hello kminery62. The way you worded some of the problems was confusing, but I tried my best.

For question B:

9 - 6(x - 1) = 2(x - 4) + 27

9 - 6x + 6 = 2x - 8 +27          Distribute.

-8x = 4                               Move similar terms to the same side.

x = -2                                 Divide.

For question C:

5x + 12 = 87

5x = 75                               Subtract.

x = 15                                Divide.

For question D:

(3/4)x - 5 = 4

(1/4)x = 3                            Divide.

x = 12                                Multiply.

For question E:

(-5/2)x / 6 = 1

(-5/2)x = 6                           Multiply.

(1/2)x = -6/5                        Divide.

x = -12/5                             Multiply.

x = -2 1/5                            Simplify.

For question F:

6x + 3 = -1

6x = -4                                Subtract.

x = -4/6                               Divide.

x = -2/3                               Simplify.
