# How do you solve -6.5+x=-4.12?

Nov 14, 2016

$x = 2.38$

#### Explanation:

To solve this problem you solve for $x$ by adding $6.5$ to each side of the equation to isolate $x$ and keep the equation balanced:

$- 6.5 + x + 6.5 = - 4.12 + 6.5$

$\left(- 6.5 + 6.5\right) + x = 2.38$

$0 + x = 2.38$

$x = 2.38$
