 # -65(x-79)=x+98

## Enter Equation or Inequality

Solve the following equation
-65(x-79)=x+98

Solve for x
-65(x - 79) = x + 98

Simplify by removing parentheses
Simplify -65(x - 79):
Distribute the -65 to each term in (x-79)
-65 * x = (-65 * 1)x = -65x
-65 * -79 = (-65 * -79) = 5135
Our Total expanded term is -65x + 5135

Our new term is
-65x + 5135 = x + 98

Simplify by removing parentheses
Our new term is
-65x + 5135 = x + 98

## Group variables

Group our variables -65x and x
subtract x from both sides
-65x + 5135 - x = x + 98 - x

-66x + 5135 = 98

## Group constants

Group our constants 5135 and 98.
subtract 5135 from both sides
-66x + 5135 - 5135 = 98 - 5135

-66x = -5037

## Divide each side of the equation by -66

 -66x -66
 =
 -5037 -66

x = 76.318181818182

x = 76.318181818182
