\[(5\div60)x =-60\]

This is given equal to -60..
So:
\[\frac{5}{6}x = -60\]
Now here you have to find x..

I am trying to follow

it is clear I am following you I am just confused as to how to find what x is.

You have to get rid of 5/6 there..
Can you multiply both the sides by 6??

just multiply -60 with 6 and divide by 5

\[\frac{5}{6}x \times 6= -60 \times 6\]

(-60)6 and divide by 5?

Can you solve that I have written above ??

NO

Can't you cancel 6 with 6 on Left hand side ??

5X = -60?

No..
You have to multiply 6 with -60..
On Right hand side why you cancelled 6 ??

oops I misunderstood that one

\[5x \times = -60 \times 5x = -360

I am still not following

Where you lost ??

on everything...

I need step by step once again please.

\[\frac{5}{6}x \times 6= -60 \times 6\]
Till this are you clear ??

(5/6x)6 = -60

Why are not multiplying 6 on right hand side ??

I thought I was

oh ok let me see

(5/6x)6 = -60x6

Yes..

Now on left hand side you can cancel 6 with bottom 6 right ??

(5x)6 = -60x6

Do you know how we cancel things ??

no

yes

Sure no??
Getting ??

I am getting it, writing notes

5(5x) = (5)-360 25= -360(5) 25=-503.8 Ok I know that is wrong

I think you are multiplying..
I said to divide..
You know what divide means ??

You did say divide
I was multiplying

\[5\div5x = 1\]

\[-360\div5\]

No you are still doing opposite:
\[\frac{5x}{5} = \frac{-360}{5}\]
Can you do this now ??

5x/5 = -360/5

Yes..

Now when you cancel top 5 with bottom 5 you will left with x and not 1..
Right ??

x only

Yes..
This is on left hand side..
now can you solve right hand side??

x= -360/5

I divide the 5 by the -360?

Yes.. go ahead..

\[\frac{-360}{5} = ??\]

-647.8

I know ight isn't right

-360/5

\[\frac{-360}{5} = -72\]

-360/5=-72

thank you! once again
