Six less than seven times a number is the same as nine times the number. Find the number.

**x = the number**

7x - 6 = 9x {six less than seven times x is equal to nine times x}

-6 = 2x {subtracted 7x from each side}

x = -3 {divided each side by 2}

**the number is -3**

phew.....we found the number!
