# How do you solve -2(w+1)+w=7-4w?

Mar 18, 2018

$w = 3$

#### Explanation:

Let's start by distributing the $- 2$ on the left to the terms in parenthesis. We get:

$- 2 w - 2 + w = 7 - 4 w$

Next, we can combine left terms on the left to get:

$- 2 - w = 7 - 4 w$

We can add $4 w$ to both sides to get:

$- 2 + 3 w = 7$

Adding $2$ to both sides, we get:

$3 w = 9$

And finally, we can divide both sides by $3$ to get

$w = 3$
