4-x=-5

I thought the answer was -9 but that doesn't seem to be it. Can someone please help? Thanks!

This is what I have:

6. 4-x=-5

The problem to solve is:

4-x=-5

Subtract 4 from both sides

x = -9 Then divie by -1

Would the answer be 9?

To Check:

4- - 9 = -5

**Reiny**, Saturday, June 27, 2009 at 9:40amyou had:

4-x=-5

Subtract 4 from both sides

x = -9

that should have been

**-x = -9**

now divided by -1 to get

x = 9
