# How do you solve -2n + 22= 6?

Mar 28, 2018

$n = 8$

#### Explanation:

$- 2 n + 22 = 6$ (subtract 22 from both sides)

$- 2 n = - 16$ (divide by -2 on both sides)

$n = 8$

Now check the answer by plugging in 8 as n in the original equation:

$- 2 \left(8\right) + 22 = 6$
$- 16 + 22 = 6$
$6 = 6$
