  2. You just have to remember that dividing a number by itself gives a quotient of 1. When it says "solve for x" that means you want to find the value of x all by itself.

    SO, if you have

    -6g = 42

    You just need to divide by the -6 to get g all by itself. Since -6g = 42,

    -6g/-6 = 42/-6
    (-6/-6)g = -7
    g = -7

    Then you can check your answer by multiplying by -6 to make sure you get the same original values:

    -6g = -6(-7) = 42.

    #2 is the same, but instead of dividing, you multiply to get rid of the fraction

    x/8 = 16
    (x/8)*8 = 16*8
    x(8/8) = 128
    x = 128

    #3 and 4 are just the same, using different numbers.

    For #5, just replace every x with a 4 and see whether the statement is true.

    5x=20
    5(4) = 20
    20 = 20
    so, yes. x=4 is a solution to that equation.
