## Solved Example

Q. Is $x = 3$ a solution to this equation? $\newline$$x - 9 = -15$$\newline$Choices:$\newline$(A)yes$\newline$(B)no
Solution:
1. Identify and Substitute: Identify the equation and substitute $x = 3$ into the equation.$\newline$Substitute $3$ for $x$ in $x − 9 = −15$.$\newline$Equation after substitution: $3 − 9 = −15$
2. Simplify Left Side: Perform the subtraction to simplify the left side of the equation. $3 - 9 = -6$
3. Compare Results: Compare the simplified result with the right side of the equation.$\newline$We found that $3 - 9 = -6$, but the equation requires it to be $-15$.$\newline$Since $-6 \neq -15$, $x = 3$ is not a solution to the equation $x - 9 = -15$.
