Lesson 6: Linear equations with parentheses# Equations with parentheses

When an equation such as -9 - (9x - 6) = 3(4x + 6) has parentheses, we can distribute without changing the value of each side. Then combine like terms. Next, we move all the x-terms to one side and the constants to the other. Finally, we solve for x. Created by Sal Khan and Monterey Institute for Technology and Education.
