$n = -14$

Work Step by Step

$-6 = \frac{3}{7}n$ We need to isolate the variable $n$ by multiplying through by the reciprocal of the coefficient of variable $n$ as shown below: $-6 \times \frac{7}{3} = \frac{3}{7}n \times \frac{7}{3}$ Simplifying we have: $-14 = n$ Rearranging the equation we have: $n = -14$ Therefore, the equation has a possible solution at $n = -14$
