    -6u - 36 = -42

    -6u - 36 + 36 = -42 + 36

    -6u = -6

    -6u/-6 = -6/-6

    u = 1

    Original equation:

    -6u - 36 = -42

    METHOD 1: Add, then divide

    Add 36 to both sides:

    -6u = -6

    Divide both sides by -6:

    u = -6/-6

    u = 1

    METHOD 2: Divide, then subtract

    Divide everything by -6:

    u + 6 = 7

    Subtract 6 from both sides:

    u = 1
