    -3z – 4 = 6z – 9z – 6

    -3z – 4 = -3z -6

    0 = -2

    no solution.

    Equation step-by-step:

    -(3z + 4) = 6z – 3(3z + 2) → we break down the () with the distributive property

    -3z – 4 = 6z – 9z – 6 → we take -4 to the right side of the equation

    -3z = 6z – 9z – 6 + 4 → we solve for – 6 + 4

    -3z = 6z – 9z – 2 → we solve 6z – 9z

    -3z = -3z – 2 → we take -3z to the left side of the equation

    -3z + 3z = -2 → we solve for – 3z – 3z

    0 = -2 → final answer. There is no solution to this equation, it’s false.
