# Someone know how to solve x/-4=9?

## i really need to solve this $\frac{x}{-} 4 = 9$

The answer is $x = - 36$.

#### Explanation:

You have to isolate $x$ to find the answer. To do this you take your equation and multiply both sides of your equation by negative four. $\frac{x}{-} 4 = 9$ then becomes $\frac{x}{-} 4 \times - 4 = 9 \times - 4$. As a final result you obtain $x = - 36$.

$x = - 36$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{x}{-} 4 = 9$

To solve for the variable $x$ we need to make $x$ alone.

To do so, let's multiply both sides by $\textcolor{b l u e}{- 4}$:
$\frac{x}{-} 4 \textcolor{b l u e}{\times - 4} = 9 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{\times - 4}$

$\frac{x}{\cancel{- 4}} \cancel{\textcolor{b l u e}{\times - 4}} = 9 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{\times - 4}$

$x = - 36$
