# How do you solve -7( - 7n - 3) = 168?

Mar 2, 2018

$n = 3$

#### Explanation:

You would start out by distributing out that $- 7$

$- 7 \left(- 7 n - 3\right) = 168$

$\left(49 n + 21\right) = 168$

$49 n + 21 = 168$

Then subtract $21$ from both sides

$49 n = 147$

Then divide both sides by $49.$

$n = 3$
