Question

What is the steps to solve -4(5+x)=39

2 Answer

  • Answer:

    x =  -14.75

    Step-by-step explanation:

    -4(5+x)=39         (Distribute)

    -20 - 4x = 39          (Add 20 on both sides)

    -4x = 39 + 20

    -4x = 59             (Divide by -4)

    x = -14.75

  • Answer:

    First think of what you are trying to solve.

    What is X?

    Reverse the steps in solving:

    [tex]39 / -4 = -9.75[/tex]

    Now after doing that, subtract it by 5:

    [tex]-9.75 - 5 = -14.75[/tex]

    Now after doing that, to check your work:

    [tex]-14.75 + 5 = -9.75 * -4 = 39[/tex]

    So the answer for X is -14.75

    There you go I hoped I helped :]
