Answer:x= -57

Step-by-step explanation:7x-63+8x-6

-x-63-7

-x=57

x=-57

Answer:x = -57

Step-by-step explanation:Simplify both sides of the equation:

Distribute:(7)(x) + (7)(-9) = 8x + -6

7x + -63 = 8x -6

7x – 63 = 8x – 6

Subtract 8x from both sides7x−63−8x=8x−6−8x

−x − 63 = −6

Add 63 to both sides−x − 63 + 63 = −6 + 63

-x = 57

Divide both sides by -1-x / -1 = 57 / -1

Therefore, you get

x = -57
