Work Step by Step

First, we apply the distributive property in order to remove the parenthesis in the equation: $3(4x-1)=6(2x-1)$ $12x-3=12x-6$ To solve this equation, we will first collect the variable and the constants on the opposite sides of the equality sign. Then, we will perform arithmetic operations on the resultant equation: $12x-3=12x-6$ $12x-12x=-6+3$ $0\ne-3$ Therefore, the solution set is {$\emptyset$}.
