    \[-5x=5\] \[x = -5/5\] x= -1

    is that supposed to say equal to 0? if so then perform the inverse operations. add 5 to both sides then divide by -5 to get x

    Is that the full equation? If so, -5x-5=0 add 5 to both sides; -5x=5 divide both sides by -5 x = -1

    -5x - 5 = -60 add 5 to both sides -5x = -55 divide both sides by -5 x = 11
