## anonymous one year ago When solving -1/8 (x + 35) = −7, what is the correct sequence of operations? A. Multiply each side by -1/8, add 35 to each side. B. Multiply each side by -1/8, subtract 35 from each side. C. Multiply each side by -8, subtract 35 from each side. D. Multiply each side by -8, add 35 to each side.

$-\frac{ 1 }{ 8 } (x + 35) = -7$

2. TylerD

you wanna get rid of the -1/8 first, so what would you do?

3. anonymous

Multiply by -1/8, right?

4. TylerD

multiply by -8

5. TylerD

-8/-8 = 1

6. TylerD

1 times (x+35) = x+35

So, multiply by -8 and subtract 35? Since you need to isolate the variable.

8. TylerD

yep

Thank you so much!
