## anonymous one year ago Seven times a number minus the number is -48. Find the number.

1. calculusxy

Let's write an equation with the information that we already know. n = number that we are trying to find 7n = 7 times "n" $7n - n = -48$

2. calculusxy

Combine the like terms and then find the value of n.

so -8/-48.? that would be 6.?

4. calculusxy

$7n - n = -48$ $6n = -48$ $n = \frac{ -48 }{ 6 }$

Remember that it is subtraction.
