Answer:

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

Explanation:

#-13n=-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#.

#(-13n)/-13=(-130)/-13#

#(cancel(-13)n)/(cancel(-13))=(-130)/-13#

#n=10#
