# How do you solve 4.28= \frac{h + 14.97}{- 1}?

Oct 9, 2016

$h = - 19.25$

#### Explanation:

$4.28 = \frac{h + 14.97}{- 1}$

$- 1 \ast 4.28 = - 1 \ast \frac{h + 14.97}{- 1} \textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a}$ Multiply both sides by -1

$- 4.28 = \cancel{- 1} \ast \frac{h + 14.97}{\cancel{-} 1} \textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a}$

$- 4.28 = h + 14.97$

$- 14.97 \textcolor{w h i t e}{a a} - 14.97 \textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a}$ Subtract 14.97 from both sides

$- 19.25 = h$
