# How do you solve the equation 20=-4c-8?

Jul 13, 2017

$c = - 7$

#### Explanation:

I would take the $- 4 c$ over the other side of the equals sign and make it positive to give:

$4 c + 20 = - 8$

You can then subtract 20 from both sides to give;

$4 c = - 20 - 8$

$4 c = - 28$

Divide both sides by four to give:

$c = - 7$
