    Answer:

      5.5

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

      18 -7x = -20.5

    We can find x by subtracting 18, then dividing by the coefficient of x. (This is known as a 2-step equation.)

      -7x = -38.5 . . . . . subtract 18 from both sides

      x = -38.5/-7 = 5.5 . . . . .divide by -7

    The value of x is 5.5.
