Answer:

Use basic division.

Explanation:

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

There are two ways to go about this:

Way 1:
Divide each side by #-8#

#d= -432/-8#

#d= 54#

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

#-d= -432/8#

#-d= -54#

#d= 54#

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