4-x=-5

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

To Check:

4- - 9 = -5

• Algebra -

My mistake 4-(9) = -5 ? This is what I believe to be the correct answer

• Algebra -

4-x=-5

Subtract 4 from both sides

x = -9

that should have been

-x = -9

now divided by -1 to get
x = 9
