How do I solve -7(8+n)=-91

Algebra

Report as

To solve the given equation, you need to simplify the bracket first by multiplying everything by -7. Therefore, -7 (8 + n) = -56 -7n = -91. Then, collect like terms together to get -7n = -91 + 56 = -35. Divide both sides by -7 to get -7n/-7 = -35/-7, n = -35/-7 = 5.

Cancel the negatives on both sides (basically dividing by -1)
then u have 7(8+n)=91
divide each side by seven
u should have 8+n=13
subtract 8 from each side
u should have n=5
you could've also divided by -7 first. there's different ways to do things so yeah. this is how it's look i u divide by -7 first.
-7(8+n)=-91
divide by negative 7
8+n=13
then subtract 8, and n=5

When you cancel it, you need to multiply everything by -1 and switch all of the signs.

The negative is on the outside therefore it only affects the outside

First you distribute the -7.
So -56 minus 7n = -91.
Add the 56 to -91. ( subtracting s negative, 2 negatives make a positive). -7n = 35.
Divide 35 by -7.
N = -5

That isn't correct
Report as
If u put the -5 in place of n u only come up with -7(8+ -5)=-91
And that is a false statement. That only equals -21.

You made it a positive 35 when it shouldve been negative

Oops. N = 5. I was around midnight when I did that.

-7( 8 + n ) = -91. Clear ( )s
-56 -7n = - 91. Remove -56 from left
+56. +56
-7n = -35. Remove -7 from left
/-7 = /-7
