# Solve for x in the equation -3x = -15

Let us solve for x by isolating the variable on one side of the given linear equation in one variable.

## Answer: The value of x in the equation -3x =-15 is x = 5.

Let us see how to solve for x in the equation -3x = -15.

**Explanation:**

Given -3x = -15

Let us divided both LHS and RHS by 3 to eliminate the coefficient of x in the LHS.

-3x/3 = -15/3

⇒ -x = -5

Cancelling negative sign on both sides,

we have, x = 5.

### Hence, the value of x in the equation -3x =-15 is x = 5.
