May 9, 2017

$18 A = - 6$ In other words $A = - \frac{1}{3}$

#### Explanation:

$18 A = - 16 + 10$ after transferring -10 to the right hand side (being positive there).

Now you can solve it:

$18 A = - 6$

or

$A = - \frac{6}{18}$

By simplification

$A = - \frac{1}{3}$

This is your answer $A = - \frac{1}{3}$
