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

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

## Answer: There is no solution for the given equation.

Let us see how to use the concept of linear equations 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 can never be equal to -8

### Hence, the equation has no solution.
