How do you solve #188=-4(-5+6v)#? Algebra Linear Equations Multi-Step Equations with Like Terms 1 Answer Sportz P. · Stefan V. Apr 19, 2018 #v=-7# Explanation: Apply the distributive property #188 = -4(-5) - 4(6v)# #188 = 20 - 24v# Subtract #20# from both sides of the equation #188 - 20 = 20 - 20 - 24v# #168 = -24v# Divide both sides by #-24# to isolate the variable #168 /-24 = (-24v)/-24# #v = -7# Answer link Related questions How do you solve multi step equations by combining like terms?
