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 = -60

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

-17y = -34

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

y = 2
