# How do you solve \frac { v } { 4} - 1.3= - 7.7?

Let's first add $1.3$ to both sides.

#### Explanation:

$\frac{v}{4} - \cancel{1.3} + \cancel{1.3} = - 7.7 + 1.3 \to \frac{v}{4} = - 6.4$

Now multiply both sides by $4$:

$\cancel{4} \times \frac{v}{\cancel{4}} = 4 \times \left(- 6.4\right) \to v = - 25.6$

$\frac{v}{4} - 1.3 = - 7.7$
$\frac{v}{4} = - 7.7 + 1.3$
$\frac{v}{4} = - 6.4$
$v = - \frac{6.4}{4}$
$v = - 1.6$
