Answer:

#w=1#

Explanation:

#1#. Add #28# to both sides of the equation.

#17w-28=-11#

#17w-28# #color(red)(+28)=-11# #color(red)(+28)#

#17w=17#

#2#. Divide both sides of the equation by #17#.

#color(red)(color(black)(17w)/17)=color(red)(color(black)(17)/17)#

#color(green)(|bar(ul(color(white)(a/a)w=1color(white)(a/a)|)))#
