Solve the equation-
w(-2)=14

m-7= -3

-3h= -42

Here are some basic rules you need to follow. Get all your numerical terms on one side of the equation by doing the same process on both sides of the equation.

w(-2) /-2 = 14/(-2)

The -2 terms on the left cancel each other out to give you:

w = -7

Do similar processes with the other two equations.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
