How do you solve #-7w + 2 = -3 #?
Just put 'w' on one side and numbers on the other.
So from the starting equation it goes like this:
-7w +2 = -3 /-2
-7w = -5 /:(-7)
The objective is to have a single w on one side of the = and everything else on the other side. This format (equation) declares the worth of a single 'w'.
The w is already on the left hand side (LHS) so we do not need to move it.
There is a 2 on the left so we need to 'get rid of it'
Multiply both sides by
Divide both sides by 7
