How would I solve a problem like the one below?
5h-9=-16+6h

  • Pre-Algebra -

    Subtract 6h from each side.

    -h-9= -16

    Now add 9 to each side.

    -h - 9 + 9 = -16 + 9

    -h = -7, or h = 7

  • Pre-Algebra -

    I see you are leaving the 9. If you are subtracting 6h from 5h would that give you -1? Do you just ignore the -1?
