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.

$−8=10$

There is no solution to this equation, because $−8\ne10$.

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