    Did you understand how I got -52 then?

    i jsut want to ask:

    0 = - 2x - 14
    does this re-arrange to give: 14/2 = x, or is it 14/(-2) = x?

    0 = -2 x - 14 => 2 x = - 14 => x = -14/2 => x = -7

    simple way:

    Add 14 to both sides

    so in

    0=-2x-14

    0+14 = -2x-14+14
    14=-2x then divide both sides by -2

    14/-2=-2/-2x
    -7=x

    right, so when the "multiply by minus two reverses", it becomes "divide by minus two".....its charge doesnt change?

    Am I supposed to just let mankind suffer the fate of not solving an equation? Hmm???....................OK!

    the answer is to raise the power to the exponetial differential equation that is the sum of the hypotonuse all over pie.

    not unless the "charge" stays on the side it came from


    eg: -4x = 7
    =>
    x = 7/(-4)
    OR
    -x = 7/4

    Lol. Anyway, From Now On, I Know That When I Reverse/rearrange "multiply By Minus Two ", It Becomes "divide By Minus Two", And Not "divide By Positive Two". Thanks Baahl And Niceone... I Enjoy Maths!!!! Yippeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!
