How do you do step by step x/2-4=-5

x/2 is a fraction

Report as

Bring the -4 to the right side(changing sign to +). X/2=-1 Now multiple both sides by2 leaving x= -2
to check put in -2for x
-2/2=-1
-1-4=-5 answer has to be x=-2

Girl, you have to remove the -4 before
you remove the 2.
When solving equations, reverse the
Order of Operations. Learn this now before you get into bad habits.
