samtab one year ago Solve X/-3 = -15. please help me:( 45 -45 5 -5

1. satellite73

$\frac{x}{-3}=-15\iff x=-15\times (-3)$

2. samtab

what? srry i dont understand

3. strenesmee

you have to multiply both sides with -3 to leave x alone

4. samtab

o its 5?

5. strenesmee

if you multiply -15 with -3 you get 45 not 5 you will not divide, just multiply
