Answer

b=9

Work Step by Step

Simplifying 6b = 27 + 3b Solving 6b = 27 + 3b Solving for variable 'b'. Move all terms containing b to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '-3b' to each side of the equation. 6b + -3b = 27 + 3b + -3b Combine like terms: 6b + -3b = 3b 3b = 27 + 3b + -3b Combine like terms: 3b + -3b = 0 3b = 27 + 0 3b = 27 Divide each side by '3'. b = 9 Simplifying b = 9
