Solve the following equation

6s+6=3(s+6)

Solve for s

6s + 6 = 3(s + 6)

Simplify by removing parentheses
Simplify 3(s + 6):
Distribute the 3 to each term in (s+6)
3 * s = (3 * 1)s = 3s
3 * 6 = (3 * 6) = 18
Our Total expanded term is 3s + 18

Our new term is
6s + 6 = 3s + 18

Simplify by removing parentheses
Our new term is
6s + 6 = 3s + 18

Group variables

Group our variables 6s and 3s
subtract 3s from both sides

6s + 6 - 3s = 3s + 18 - 3s

Cancel 3s on the right side:

3s + 6 = 18

Group constants

Group our constants 6 and 18.
subtract 6 from both sides

3s + 6 - 6 = 18 - 6

Cancel 6 on the left side:

3s = 12

Divide each side of the equation by 3
