Erica solved the equation −5x − 25 = 78; her work is shown below. Identify the error and where it was made. −5x − 25 = 78 Step 1: −5x − 25 − 25 = 78 − 25 Step 2: −5x = 53 Step 3: negative five times x over negative five = fifty-three over negative five Step 4: x = negative fifty-three over five Step 1: She should have added 25 to each side. Step 1: She should have divided both sides by −5. Step 3: She should have divided both sides by −5. Step 3: She should have multiplied both sides by −5.
