  • Answer:

    Equation: 178 - x = - 62

    Explanation:

    Start of the wee: 178

    One withdrawal: x

    End of the week: -62

    178 - x = -62

    Simplify both sides of equation

    178−x=−62

    178+−x=−62

    −x+178=−62

    Subtract 178 from both sides

    −x+178−178=−62−178

    −x=−240

    Divide both sides by -1

    -x / -1 = -240 / -1

    x=240
