Answer:

Use the distributive property and solve for n.

Explanation:

The distributive property states that #a(b*c)=a*b+a*c#.. Let's use that on the parenthesis above:

#-5(6n+6)=-5*6n+(-5)*6=-30n-30#

We now have #30=-30n-30#. Next, we'll add 30 to each side to isolate #n# on one side of the equation:

#60=-30n#

From here, just divide each side by -30 to get our answer:

#-2=n#
