Question

What is -121-4x=39+6x

1 Answer

  • So we're trying to solve for x. To do this we need to balance the equation.
    -121 -4x = 39 + 6x
    Get x on one side; add 4x to both sides.
    -121 = 39 + 10x
    Subtract 39 from both sides (remember when subtracting a negative to a negative, it's basically just adding with negative signs).
    -160 = 10x
    Divide both sides by 10.
    x = -16.
    Hope this helps!
