# How do you solve and check your solution given 4=-1/8q?

May 17, 2017

Multiply both sides with -8 and get your solution $q = - 32$

#### Explanation:

When you multiply both sides with -8, you will get

$4 \cdot - 8 = - \left(- \frac{8}{8}\right) q$

which yields

$- 32 = q$

$q = - 32$
This is your answer. $q = - 32$
