4-9.

Solve for $x$. Check your solutions, if possible. Homework Help ✎

1. $−2(4−3x)−6x=10$

1. $\frac{x-5}{-2}=\frac{x-1}{-3}$

• Distribute the −2.

−8 + 6x − 6x = 10

Simplify.

−8 = 10

• Start by multiplying both sides by a common multiple to remove the fractions.

• There is no solution to this equation, because −8 ≠ 10.
