Use basic division.

#### Explanation:

Here you know that $- 8 d = - 432$ and you have to find $d$

Way 1:
Divide each side by $- 8$

$d = - \frac{432}{-} 8$

$d = 54$

Way 2:
Divide each side by $8$ and remove the negative sign

$- d = - \frac{432}{8}$

$- d = - 54$

$d = 54$

You can check this by substituting your answers into the equation.
