    According to the given condition, \[\frac{ 4 }{ 7 }x - 5 = -13\]

    So ,we first add 5 to both sides. \[\frac{ 4 }{ 7 }x - 5 + 5 = -13 + 5\]

    \[\frac{ 4 }{ 7 }x = -13 + 5 \] \[\frac{ 4 }{ 7 }x = -8\] and then divide 4/7 on both sides

    -13 + 5 = 8 \[\frac{ 4 }{ 7 }x = -8 \]

    Multiply both sides by \[\frac{ 7 }{ 4 }\]

    either multiply both sides by 7/4 or divide both sides by 4/7 the result should be the same
