What is "8+c/-4= -6. Could someone explain that please?

so my homework for algebra says: 8+ c-4 (c over negative 4) = -6 and I don't get it. Could someone please explain it to me? Thank you :)

It looks like we have a fraction in the equation: c/-4. We don't like fractions, so let's take it out by multiplying every variable in the equation by -4:
8+(c/-4)=-6
-4(8)+[-4(c/-4)]=-4(-6)
Multiplying -4 by c/-4 will get rid of the denominator; so we will be left with c. Every other variable gets multiplied regularly.
-32+c=24
Now add 32 on both sides to make c alone.
C=56

You have to solve for "c."

multiply both sides by (-4) add (-32) to both sides and then add to find the value of c

8+c/-4=-6
-8. -8
C/-4=-14
*-4. *-4
C=56
Check answer:
8+c/-4=-6
8+(56)/-4=-6
8+-14=-6
-6=-6
