    I am not sure...I think it would still be 10...

    No negative number plus six will get to sixteen.

    transpose 6 to the other side so -6 + 16 = -d Add like terms 10 = -d d=-10 :)

    So is this what you are asking?:\[\frac{ b-3 }{ -5 }=-15\]

    Okay, so really this is the same thing as being this:\[(b-3)\div-5=-15\]Now, like I said before - you have to work backwards. Do PEMDAS backwards. SADMEP. So if you do it correctly, it would come out b=78

    This is what I did: (-15 * -5) + 3 = b = 78

    Or, if you want to me to be more specific: (b - 3) / -5 = -15 (-15 * -5) + 3 = b 75 + 3 = b 78 = b

    I'm thinking I have to multiply -8p and 9p since they are like terms

    then it becomes 13 = -7 - 3 and then -72 - 3 which becomes -75 then multiply 13 and -75 giving me -975 hmm that seems way too high

    This is what I thought: 13 = -8p - 3 + 9p I combine the like terms, which are -8p and 9p by adding 9 to -8 (because you always keep the sign before the number with the number), making the equation 13 = 1p - 3. From there I go to (13 + 3) / 1 Then 16 / 1 And 16 = p

    Simplifying 13 = -9p + 13 + 9p Reorder the terms: 13 = 13 + -9p + 9p Combine like terms: -9p + 9p = 0 13 = 13 + 0 13 = 13 Add '-13' to each side of the equation. 13 + -13 = 13 + -13 Combine like terms: 13 + -13 = 0 0 = 13 + -13 Combine like terms: 13 + -13 = 0 0 = 0 Solving 0 = 0 Couldn't find a variable to solve for. This equation is an identity, all real numbers are solutions

    Wow. I am actually about to leave my computer. Let me try my fastest. Okay, instead of 13 = 13 + 9p + 9p, I would do 13 = 9p + 9p + 13. Anywho, the next step would be combining like terms which would be -9 + 9 = 0p. 13 = 0p + 13. 13 - 13 = 0. 0 / 0 = p = ERROR.

    you have to multiply -5 to both sides to cancel out the denominator -10 * -5 = 50; then you have z + 5 = 50; substract 5 from both sides and you get z = 45

    plug -55 back into the regular equation and you will get 10 not -10
