# How do you solve -4( 7v + 3) = 36- 4v?

Mar 27, 2017

$v = - 2$

#### Explanation:

Distribute the $- 4$ into the parentheses:

$- 28 v - 12 = 36 - 4 v$

Add $28 v$ to both sides:

$- 28 v - 12 + 28 v = 36 - 4 v + 28 v$

$- 12 = 36 + 24 v$

Subtract 36 on both sides:

$- 12 - 36 = 36 + 24 v - 36$

$- 48 = 24 v$

Divide 24 on both sides:

$- \frac{48}{24} = v$

$- 2 = v$

You can rewrite this as:

$v = - 2$
