# How do you solve 16x + 4= 3x - 3?

May 25, 2018

$x = - \frac{7}{13}$

#### Explanation:

You can start the equation off by trying to move all the numbers with variables to the left. To achieve this, you can subtract $3 x$ from the right and subtract it from the left. If you did it right, your equation would look like this:

$13 x + 4 = - 3$

Then, to make the variable $x$ alone on the left side, you can subtract $4$ from both sides to get

$13 x = - 7$

Then you would divide both sides by $13$ to get x to become one number which is

$x = - \frac{7}{13}$
