    Answer:

    x = —2/5

    Step-by-step explanation:

    1/4x=-5/8

    Cross multiply to express in linear form

    4x x —5 = 8 x 1

    —20x = 8

    Divide both side by the coefficient of x i.e —20

    x = 8/—20

    Reduce to the lowest term

    x = —2/5

    Answer:

    Your goal is to isolate the x. This is a multiplication problem, so use the inverse operation, which is division. Divide both sides of the equation by 14 by multiplying by the reciprocal, 4. (− 58)(4) is − 52. Use substitution to check the answer. x = − 52
