Solve: -7x-24=-26 1/3

This is what i did, not sure if I did it right.

-7x-24=-26 and 1/3, -24 from both sides

-7x= 2 and 1/3, then divide by -7 and got x= -2 and 1/3 over -7 I have no idea how to right that so I know it has to be wrong, please help!!

**Creative Teacher**, Wednesday, August 10, 2011 at 1:46amDouble check the math on this.

-7*-(46/21)-24 = 26/3

-7*-1/3 - 24 = 26+1/3

x=1/3

**Reiny**, Wednesday, August 10, 2011 at 8:03amfirst get rid of that useless mixed fraction.

-7x-24=-79/3

now multiply each term by -3 to get rid of fractions and all those negative signs

21x + 72 = 79

21x = 7

x = 7/21 = 1/3
