pre-Algebra

posted by .

Sorry, struggling through pre-Algebra .. :-( .. How do i figure out 5x = -20 ?

  • pre-Algebra -

    divide both sides by 5
    5x/5 = x
    -20/5 = -4
    so
    x = -4

  • pre-Algebra -

    divide both sides by 5 to get x by itself

  • pre-Algebra -

    divide both sides by 5
    5x/5= -20/5
    x = -4
