Ok so I understand the concept of one step equations but I need help with this one. If your reading this and is good in math please help me. Remember whoever gets the answer right (well actually whoever I pick as the best answer) gets points!

8 - x = 10

Relevance

x=-2

You have to bring the unknown to one side by itself in order to solve.

So

8-10=x

-2=x

1 x=4 2 x=5 3 x=3 4 x=3 5 x=2 6 x=3 7 x=4 8 x=4 9 x=6 10 x=4 11 x=6

This would be just like saying -x+8=10. So here we would take -8 off both sides. So now -x=2. Divide each side by -1, and get x= - 2. (x equals negative 2)

8 - x = 10

-8 -8

- x = 2

*-1 *-1

x = -2

Hope this helps

8 - x = 10

-x = 2

x = -2

Alright. explanation?

welll. you want to isolate x, so subtract 8 from both sides.

Then, you would get . -x=10-8 So then, -x would equal 2. -x=2

Then. to get the negative out so the x would be by itself, you divide the -1 out, which you would get x= negative 2. ;)
