for h(x)=5-4x, determine the input for x when the output of h(x) is -11

i have tried to answer this question so many times , but i cant figure it out

• math -

5 - 4 x = -11

- 4 x = -11 -5

- 4 x = -16 Divide both sides with - 4

- 4 x / - 4 x = - 16 / - 4

x = 4

Proof:

h ( x ) = 5 - 4 x = 5 - 4 * 4 = 5 - 16 = - 11

• math -

5 - 4 x = -11

- 4 x = -11 -5

- 4 x = -16 Divide both sides with - 4

- 4 x / - 4 = - 16 / - 4

x = 4
