Question
Solve:

a. 3/11x-3/11=-x+1

Answer
If this is Algebra 1, I assume the problem to be
3x/11 - 3/11 = -x + 1, just to clarify that 3/11x is 3x/11 and not 3/(11x).

Add x + 3/11 to both sides, getting 14x/11 = 14/11.
That gives x = 1, which gives 3/11 - 3/11 = -1 + 1, which is true,
so that is the correct answer.
