Answer:

See the entire solution process below:

Explanation:

Divide each side of the equation by #color(red)(18)# to solve for #f# while keeping the equation balanced:

#(18f)/color(red)(18) = -216/color(red)(18)#

#(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(18)))f)/cancel(color(red)(18)) = -12#

#f = -12#

Answer:

#f=-12#

Explanation:

#18f = -216#

divide both sides of the equation by 18

#(18f)/color(green)18 = -216/color(green)18#

18/18 = 1, so we can simplify

#1f= f = -216/18#

Then divide it out to get the final answer

#f=-12#
