## anonymous one year ago When solving negative one over eight (x + 35) = −7, what is the correct sequence of operations? Multiply each side by negative one over eight , add 35 to each side Multiply each side by negative one over eight , subtract 35 from each side Multiply each side by −8, subtract 35 from each side Multiply each side by −8, add 35 to each side

hint: If I start with this equation: $\Large - \frac{{x + 35}}{8} = - \frac{1}{7}$ then I can multiply both sides by -8, so I can write this: $\Large x + 35 = \frac{8}{7}$
