## Algebra 1: Common Core (15th Edition)

We need to get the v alone. Thus, we cancel out the addition by subtracting 6 on both sides. This leaves us with the equation $v/-8=-38/7$. In order to cancel out division, we use multiplication, so we multiply both sides by -8 to get that v=43 3/7. We plug 43 3/7 in for v and confirm that our answer is, indeed, correct.
