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

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

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

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

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

    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.
