Answer

r=7

Work Step by Step

13-3r+2+6r-2r-1=3+2$\times$9 First combine like terms (13+2-1)+(-3r+6r-2r)=3+2$\times$9 14+r=3+2$\times$9 Then multiply 14+r=3+18 Then subtract 14 from both sides r=3+18-14 r=21-14 r=7 Check the answer. 13-3(7)+2+6(7)-2(7)-1=3+2$\times$9 13-21+2+42-14-1=3+18 (-8)+2+42-14-1=21 (-6)+42-14-1=21 (36)-14-1=21 (22)-1=21 21=21
