    Answer:

    B) x=0

    Step-by-step explanation:

    x +20+ 10x= 9x +20

    1st step: simplify the left side by combining like terms

    10x+x=11x

    2nd) 11x+ 20= 9x +20

    Next, you subtract 11 and 9 which is equal to 2.

    2x+20=20

    Now, the 20 cancels out the other twenty so your left with 2x which is not an answer, therefore the only other number is 0 to be possible.

    Check: 0+20+0=20 (first expression)

    0x9=0   0+20= 20 (2nd expression)

    20 = 20 so this is CORRECT!!!!!!!!
