How to solve a algebra equation

                             x + -6= 9

                      Reorder the terms:
                            -6 + x = 9

                             -6 + x = 9

                      Solving for variable 'x'.
 Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right.
              Add '6' to each side of the equation.
                          -6 + 6 + x = 9 + 6

                  Combine like terms: -6 + 6 = 0
                         0 + x = 9 + 6
                           x = 9 + 6

                 Combine like terms: 9 + 6 = 15
                                x = 15

                                 x = 15

                  Answer would be: x - 6 = 9

Understanding improper and mixed fractions

WALT: understand improper and mixed fractions.

Pentagons maths group and I have been trying to understand improper and mixed fractions. We had to highlight the best answer. As part of Mrs Nua  and Mrs Ilaoa maths group, we k now that we have to read all answers if it is a option one. Why? because if you pick the first answer you see then it could be wrong, that's why it's has optional answers.
