# How do you solve 18 - 4n = 62?

Jul 27, 2015

$n = - 11$

#### Explanation:

This can be solve by using simple algebraic properties. Here we have;

$18 - 4 n = 62$

Subtract 18 on both side, we get;

$\implies 18 - 4 n - 18 = 62 - 18$
$\implies - 4 n = 44$

Divide each side by -4, we get;

$\implies \frac{- 4 n}{- 4} = \frac{44}{- 4}$

Cancel out the common factors, we get;

$\implies n = - 11$
