1.) you would distribute the 6---- 12x-66+15 2.) you would add like terms---- 12x-51=3x+12 3.) you would subtract 3x from each side of the equal sign---- 9x-51=12 4.) you would add 51 on each side of the equal sign----9x=63 5.) you would divide both sides of the equal sign by 9 giving you you answer---------                           x=7
