## iiAriana one year ago Solve negative 7 over 3, the whole multiplied by x minus 3 equals negative 52. 21 39 45 59

What do you mean the whole thing? The only thing I can see that we would solve is x.

2. LynFran

$-\frac{ 7 }{ 3 }(x-3)=-52$

3. LynFran

?

4. iiAriana

It's like this (-7/3) * -3 = -52

5. iiAriana

Yes it's like what @LynFran did

6. LynFran

$-\frac{ 7 }{ 3}x+7=-52$$-\frac{ 7 }{ 3 }x=-52-7$

7. LynFran

now to find x,...divide both sides of the equation by $-\frac{ 7 }{ 3 }$

8. iiAriana

Ok

@LynFran I did it and got 39?
