-16 = 8x/5 Isolate x. Cancel out the 5 by multiplying by 5, since it is being divided. -16 * 5 = (8x/5) * 5 -80 = 8x Now divide 8 on both sides to cancel out the 8 being multiplied. -80/8 = 8x/8 -10 = x

what about Solve for x. ⅞ x = -5 (fraction is negative) 1)x = -4 3/8 2)x = 4 3/8 3)x = 5 5/7

8. Rushwr

$-16 = \frac{ 8x }{5 }$ $-16* 5 = 8x$ $-80 = 8x$ $x = \frac{ -80 }{ 8} = -10$

Is that the only answers given ?
