# How do you solve -13n=-130?

Nov 3, 2016

Divide both sides by $- 13$ to find $n = 10$.

#### Explanation:

$- 13 n = - 130$

The $- 13$ is multiplied by $n$. The operation that is the "opposite" of multiplication is division. So, to isolate the $n$ (get the $n$ by itself), divide both sides by $- 13$.

$\frac{- 13 n}{-} 13 = \frac{- 130}{-} 13$

$\frac{\cancel{- 13} n}{\cancel{- 13}} = \frac{- 130}{-} 13$

$n = 10$
