# Solve for x: −3(x + 3) = −3(x + 1) − 5. solution or no solution.

We will use the concept of linear equation in order to find the value of x.

## Answer: No solution, exists for the above equation.

Let us see how we will use the concept of linear equation in order to find the value of x.

**Explanation**:

The equation that is given to us is −3(x + 3) = −3(x + 1) − 5.

In order to find the value of x, let us first simplify the equation and solve the parenthesis.

-3x - 9 = -3x - 8

On canceling -3x from both sides, we find that -9 will never be equal to -8
