    Hello, this one is really easy i'll help you with it.

    -17v - 26 = -60

    -17v - 26 = -60

    -17v -26 + 26 = -60 + 26 (You need to turns -26 positive to get rid of the -26 on the right side)

    -17v = -34 (so now you need to devide these 2 numbers by each other)

    So the answer would be v= 2

    Godd luck!:)

    Add 26 on the other side(which cancels out the -26 on the left side): -17v = -60 + 26

    -17v = -34

    Divide -17 on the other side(which cancle out the -17 on the left side): v = -34 divided by -17

    v = 2

  • -17v-26+26=-60+26

    -17v/-17=-34/-17

    v=2

    -17v - 26 = -60

    -17v - 26 + 26 = -60 + 26

    -17y = -34

    -17y/ (-17) = -34 / (-17)

    y = 2
