The best way to think of this is putting parenthesis around the -64, which makes the equation look like. -987 - (-654). The important rule to remember is that two negatives equal a positive, so the subtraction of -654 equals a positive 654. -987 + 654 Then add as usual remembering that the first number is negative plus a 654 so the numbers will become a smaller number. -987 + 654 = -333

Question:

Solve the Equation: 5(-3x-2)-(x-3) = -4(4x+5) +13

The solving of the equation means that for this equation we are solving for x that both sides will be equal to each other. First, let's focus on the left-hand side of the equal sign. The first thing we should do is distribute the 5 to (-3x-2). 5 times -3x = -15x. 5 times -2 = -10. After we distribute the 5, it should come out to (-15x-10). Now on the left hand side we have, (-15x - 10) - (x-3). Combine like terms on this side being sure to pay attention to the subtraction of the (x-3). Combine the like terms of -15x - x, which equals -16x. Then combine the like terms without the variable which is ( -10 - (-3)) = -7. After combining like terms, on the left side, the result is, -16x -7. We will do the same with the right-hand side of the equation, starting with the distribution of the -4 to the (4x+5), which equals -16x-20. Then we can combine like terms, which are only the terms without a variable on this side, combine -20 +13 = -7. The result on the right-hand side was -16x -7. The equation now looks like -16x -7 = -16x -7. Then take the 16x and add it to both sides and add the 7 to both sides resulting in 0 =0 which is true.
