# How do you solve -10v-6=3?

Dec 28, 2016

$\textcolor{g o l d}{\text{v = -0.90}}$

#### Explanation:

$\textcolor{g r e e n}{\text{Add 6 to both sides:}}$

$- 10 v - \cancel{6} = 3$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a a} + \cancel{6}$ $\textcolor{w h i t e}{a} + 6$

6 cancels out on the left side, and when you add 6 to 3 on the right you get 9:

$- 10 v = 9$

$\textcolor{c \mathmr{and} a l}{\text{Divide both sides by -10 to get v by itself.}}$

(cancel"-10"v)/cancel"-10"=(9)/-10

Now you are just left with $v$ on the left side and -0.90 on the right side.

Thus,
$\textcolor{g o l d}{\text{v = -0.90}}$
