# How do you solve k+(-6)=2?

Nov 28, 2016

$k = 8$

#### Explanation:

To solve this problem first eliminate the parenthesis:

$k + \left(- 6\right) = 2$

$k - 6 = 2$

Now we can add 6 to each side to isolate and solve for $k$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$k - 6 + 6 = 2 + 6$

$k - 0 = 8$

$k = 8$
