Answer:

#w=24.97#

Explanation:

The goal here is to isolate the variable, #w#. To do that, we need to move the #-16.7# over to the other side. In the original equation, #16.7# is being subtracted from one side, so to undo that in order to get #w# alone, we need to do the inverse property, so addition.
#w-16.7=8.27#
#w=24.97#
