    @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.

    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.
