## staceyyyy1 3 years ago -7+n/22=-1 Show steps? answers:-15 (its hard for me to show my work; cause i do it in my head.)

1. smr_kml

n/22 = 6 n = 6*22 = 132

2. ZhangYan

3. smr_kml

4. smr_kml

it's not right

5. staceyyyy1

correct me if im wrong.

6. smr_kml

the answer should be 132 not -15

7. staceyyyy1

thats not even an option on my paper.

8. smr_kml

So the problem is wrong

9. Mertsj

$\frac{-7+n}{22}\times22=-1\times22$

10. nbouscal

@smr_kml You're reading the question wrong. The question is as Mertsj has written it. The answer is correct.

11. Mertsj

$-7+n=-22$

12. nbouscal

The steps are as follows: Multiply both sides by 22, then add seven to both sides.

13. JayDS

$-7+\frac{n}{22}=-1$ n/22 = -1 +7 n/22 = 6 n = 132

14. Mertsj

$-7+n+7=-22+7$

15. Mertsj

n=-15

16. nbouscal

The takeaway lesson from this, @staceyyyy1, is to use parentheses.

17. smr_kml

I got the same answer @JayDS

18. nbouscal

Of course you got the same answer, smr, you're both solving the same incorrect problem.

19. smr_kml

she has to put ( )

20. smr_kml

Ok I'm sorry I didn't know that it's seperate

21. Mertsj

22. Mertsj

@smr_kml There is A RAT in sepARATe

23. nbouscal

To me it was plenty clarified by the fact that she said the answer was -15. However, she should in the future use parentheses for clarity.

24. smr_kml

right! I'm sorry again everyone!

25. staceyyyy1

thanks everyone. and thanks especially to Mertsj and nbouscal(:
