How do you solve 15+ 13v = - 2v?

Oct 14, 2017

$v = - 1$

Explanation:

$15 + 13 v = - 2 v$

First, you need to put everything with $v$ on one side:

$15 = - 15 v$

Flip the equation around to put $v$ on the left hand side:

$- 15 v = 15$

Isolate $v$ by dividing by $- 15$:

$\frac{- 15 v}{- 15} = \frac{15}{- 15}$

$v = - 1$
