can someone help me solve this problem
-x/2+4=12
i got x=-16 but that didn't seem to be right

  • math - ,

    That's correct. Here's the check:

    -(-16)/2 + 4 = 12
    16/2 + 4 = 12
    8 + 4 = 12
    12 = 12

    Your answer is right.

    -x/2 + 4 = 12
    so: -x/2 = 8
    so: -x = 16
    so x=-16

    You can check this by filling in -16 in the equation:

    -(-16)/2 + 4 = 16/2 + 4 = 8 + 4 = 12

    thanks
