*original*

- Add 1.2 to both sides...

#-4c\cancel(-1.2)\cancel(\color(red)(+1.2))=0.8\color(red)(+1.2)# - Simplify...
#-4c=0.8+1.2#

*which becomes*#-4c=2.0# *otherwise known as*#-4c=2# - Divide both sides by -4...

#(\cancel(-4)c)/(\cancel(\color(red)(-4)))=2/\color(red)(-4)# *also written as*#c=-2/4# - Simplifying the resulting fraction...
#c=-2/4\rarr-(1\cdot2)/(2\cdot2)#

you can remove a 2 from the numerator and denominator... so your result is
