Answer:

Divide each side of the equation by #-900# to solve for #w# while keeping the equation balanced.

Explanation:

Divide each side of the equation by #color(red)(-900)# to solve for #w# while keeping the equation balanced.

#2700/color(red)(-900) = (-900w)/color(red)(-900)#

#-3 = (color(red)(cancel(color(black)(-900)))w)/cancel(color(red)(-900))#

#-3 = w#

#w = -3#
