Question1
The difference of a number and 7 is -8

I put n-7=-8
Is that correct?

Question 2
Six less than the product of four and a number is -5
I put 6-4n= -5

1. Damon

I do not know for question 1. It could be + or -. My guess is that you are right.

question 2 is
4 n - 6 = -5

2. Kent

Thanks

3. Kent

For the second equation

N= 23/4?

4. Damon

4 n = 6-5 = 1
n = 1/4

5. Kent

Thanks a lot

6. Damon

No problem :)
