The value of x is 9 NOT CORRECT   

 

I wish I could be more explicit but I'm new to it to so I really only know how to determine the answer.   

 

oh man so sorry go with eps answer I didvided 108 by 12 not 27 for some reasons.

3(4x+4)+15x=120       Use distrib property to expand left side

12x + 12 + 15x = 120      Collect the 'x' terms

27x + 12 = 120              subtract 12 from both sides

27x = 108                     divide both sides by 27

x = 4
