# How do you solve 8( 1+ 2v ) + 8= - 112?

May 25, 2018

$v = - 8$

#### Explanation:

Isolate your variable to find the value.

$8 \left(1 + 2 v\right) + 8 = - 112$

$8 \left(1 + 2 v\right) = - 120$

$1 + 2 v = - 15$

$2 v = - 16$

$v = - 8$

Check: $8 \left(1 + 2 \cdot - 8\right) + 8 = - 112$

$8 \cdot - 15 + 8 = - 112$

$- 120 + 8 = - 112$

$- 112 = - 112$
