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?
