# Algebra, explain how to please

posted by .

Can someone explain to me how to solve
-14=2/5(9-2b)
It would be greatly appreciated
thank you

• Algebra, explain how to please -

First multiply both sides by 5/2

-35 = 9-2b

Then subtract 9 from both sides and multiply both sides by -2.

• Algebra, oops -

You are supposed to divide both sides by -2. Sorry.
