# How do you solve -7(x-3)=-4?

May 13, 2016

$x = 3 \frac{4}{7}$

#### Explanation:

$- 7 \left(x - 3\right) = - 4$ is equivalent to

$- 7 x - 3 \left(- 7\right) = - 4$ or

$- 7 x + 21 = - 4$ or

$- 7 x + 21 - 21 = - 4 - 21$ or

$- 7 x = - 25$ or

$- 7 x \times \frac{1}{- 7} = - 25 \times \frac{1}{- 7}$ or

$x = \frac{25}{7} = 3 \frac{4}{7}$
