Homework Help: math

Posted by drwls on Wednesday, January 17, 2007 at 10:13pm.

I believe Lance meant to write x = -5/18

I am wondering why you have two minus signs before the number 13. Two minuses make a plus, but usually they are not written that way.

combine like terms
-18x=5
solve for x
x=5/18

what does x equal in... -2x-18=16x--13
