# How do you solve -n/8=-8?

Nov 3, 2016

#### Answer:

$n = 64$

#### Explanation:

Whenever an expression is set to equal another one like that you can cross multiply.

$- \frac{n}{8} = - 8$
$- \frac{n}{8} = - \frac{8}{1}$
cross multiply
$\left(- n\right) \left(1\right) = \left(- 8\right) \left(8\right)$
$- n = - 64$
$n = 64$
