y + 12 = -10

x + 8 = -1

v + 13 = -11

p + 14 = -1

h - 9 = 12

c + 5 = 2

a - 12 = -19

q + 3 + -5

k - 16= 7

k= 23

y + 12 = -10

y= 22

x + 8 = -1

x= -9

v + 13 = -11

v= -24

p + 14 = -1

p= -15

h - 9 = 12

h= 21

c + 5 = 2

c= -3

a - 12 = -19

a= -7

q + 3 + -5

q = -8

m - 10 = 4

m= 14

j+11= 4

j= -7

1) K=23

2)Y=-22

3)X=-9

4)V=-24

5)P=-15

6)H=21

7)C=-3

8)A=7

9)Q=-8

10)M=14

11)J=-7

U switch the sighn (+or-) that's next to the variable

(X) Then add or subtract the number on the other side. X+4=6. Then change the sighn so u subract 4 from 6 so x would equal 2 or vis versa if the sighn is negative, if its a negative # x+4=-6 subtract 4 from negative -6 but instead of being 2 you add 4 and 6 to get -10 because 4 becomes negative when you switch the sighn so it would be x=-10, if its the other way around x-4=6 you change the sighn to + and add 4 to 6 to get 10 so x=10 hope this helps

This should be easy..

If it is a letter plus a number, then subtract that number from both sides.

If it is a letter minus a number, add that number to both sides.

for example. k-16=7.

k-16+16=7+16.

k=23.

example 2. y+12=-10.

y+12-12=-10-12.

y=-22.

I'm not going to do your homework for you but just add the two numbers together and you get the first number. Example: 16+7=23. To check it just subtract 23-16=7
