    Correct. So, in order to solve for a, you need to isolate it. How can you get the a by itself?

    If you have a negative number you add a positive one. If you have a positive one, you will deed to subtract the number. Remember, what you do to one side you need to do to the other

    Right. the minus sign is attached to the 4.8 making it a negative number

  28. anonymous

    Then you change it to a positive

    Well, we are not changing it, but we need to add a positive 4.8 to cancel it out

    -4.8 +4.8 ____ 0.0

    Then the a is by itself

    Right

    So, if you add 4.8 to the left side to cancel and get the a by itself, you need to add the same to the right side
