# The solution of the equation 3x + 7 = -20 is

(a) 17/7

(b) - 9

(c) 9

(d) 13/3

**Solution:**

Let’s solve the equation to find out the correct option.

The given equation is 3x + 7 = -20

3x = -20 - 7

x = -27/3

x = -9

Hence out of the four options, the correct option is (b) -9

**✦ Try This:** The solution of the equation 3x - 2 = -20 is (a) 18, (b) -6, (c) 20/3, (d) 6

The given equation is 3x - 2 = -20

3x = - 20 + 2

x = -18/3

x = -6

Hence out of the four options, the correct option is (b) -6
