## anonymous one year ago How would I solve for -12w+39=-4w-17? Wouldn't subtract 39 from both side of the equation I don't know if I'm right and if I am what do I do after

solve for W

2. KendrickLamar2014

Step 1: Add 4w to both sides. $−12w+39+4w=−4w−17+4w$ $= −8w+39=−17$

3. KendrickLamar2014

Step 2: Subtract 39 from both sides. $−8w+39−39=−17−39$ $=$ $−8w=−56$

4. KendrickLamar2014

Step 3: Divide both sides by -8. $\frac{ -8w }{ -8 } = \frac{ -56 }{ -8 }$ $w = 7$

$Answer: w = 7$
