    This is algebra. Not multiplication.

    Was the original equation: a)\(\frac{g}{17-8} = -6\) b)\(\frac{g}{17} - 8 = -6\)

    No, you have to find the varible for g. so you have to divide.

    You don't divide. You multiply. \[\frac{g}{17} - 8 = -6\] \[\frac{g}{17} = 2\] \[g = 2(17)\] \[g = 34\]

    Sorry, yes you do multiply, because g/17 is a quotient (sorry mistake)
