## Answers ( No )

The value of x is equal to -4.-5 + 5x = -(1 – 6x)

Distribute -1 to each term inside the parentheses.

-5 + 5x = -1 + 6x

Subtract 5x from both sides.

-5 = -1 + x

Add 1 to both sides.

-4 = x

-5+5x=-(1-6x)

distribute the negative 1

-5 +5x = -1 +6x

subtract 5x from each side

-5 = -1 +x

add 1 to each side

-4 = x

Answer: x=-4
