# How do you solve 32+4(c-1)=-(4c+5)?

Use the distributive property to get $32 + 4 c - 4 = - 4 c - 5$. Combine like terms to get $28 + 4 c = - 4 c - 5$. Add 5 to each side to get $33 + 4 c = - 4 c$. Subtract 4c from each side to get $33 = - 8 c$. Finally, divide each side by -8 to get $- \frac{33}{8} = c$.
