 # -0.01x+1000=880

## Enter Equation or Inequality

Solve the following equation
-0.01x+1000=880

Solve for x
-0.01x + 1000 = 880

## Group constants

Group our constants 1000 and 880.
subtract 1000 from both sides
-0.01x + 1000 - 1000 = 880 - 1000

-0.01x = -120

## Divide each side of the equation by -0.01

 -0.01x -0.01
 =
 -120 -0.01

x = 12000

x = 12000
