Sep 1, 2016

The solution to this linear equation is $n = - 1$

#### Explanation:

Solving for a single variable linear equation is pretty straight forward. Just try to simplify the equation following the D-MAS rule and keep the variable terms on one side and other constants on other side to get the answer

here,
−8n+4(1+5n)=−6n−14 ;or
$- 8 n + 4 + 20 n = - 6 n - 14$ ;or
$- 8 n + 20 n + 6 n = - 14 - 4$ ;or
$18 n = - 18$ ;or
$n = - 1$
