    Answer:

    x = -1

    Step-by-step explanation:

    2x – 7 = 9x

    Subtract 2x from both sides: -7 = 7x

    Divide both sides by 7: -1 = x

    Now plug in 7 for every value of x in the original equation to make sure you are correct:

    2(-1) – 7 = 9(-1)

    -2 – 7 = -9

    -9 = -9

    I hope this helps!
