    Okay, the first thing to do is to combine like terms. How do you think you can do that? We want to combine numbers that look alike.

    Okay. Since the 5 has no x by it that means we can combine it with the 1. We do this by subtracting 5 from each side. Try this and tell me what you think the new equation would look like

    Perfect! You got this! Next we need to isolate the variable (x) by multiplying each side by -4. What does the equation look like now? And can you find the answer? :)

    Okay, thats okay too. So our equation looks like this: x/-4 = -4. Since x is being divided by the -4 we need to get the x by itself and multiply x/-4 times -4 which would give us x. since we multiplied one side by -4 we multiple the other side by -4. And since two negatiavies that are mupltiplied by each other equal a positive your answer is x = 16

    No problem! We start out like we did before by combining like numbers. So since the -7 and the 8 are not connected to any x's we can combine them

  34. anonymous

  36. anonymous
    • 5 years ago
    Best Response

    Medals 0

    Opps :) okay. So since the 7 is being subtracted we can add 7 to each side. So the new equation would be x/4x = 15

  37. anonymous
    • 5 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    then u would multiply 4 to each side rite

  48. anonymous

    Okay, no problem. So to divide by a fraction we have to actually multiple by the reciprocal. This means that instead of dividing by 2/3 from each side, we multiply each side by 3/2. The reciprocal just basically means the opposite of the fraction. Does that make sense?

  49. anonymous

    so does tht mean y = 27

    Since we have to add the 32 that is negative to both sides we add it, so it is actually -17 + 32 which would be 15 :) but you got the right idea

  59. anonymous
    • 5 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    so it would b 15 - 3/5f

    since the equation is 15 = -3/5f we have to multiply each side by the reciprocal of -3/5 which would be 5/3. that would cancel out the right side, and on the left side we would have 15 times 5/3 = f

  63. anonymous
    • 5 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    so the answer would be f = 25
