# Chapter 2 - Section 2.2 - The Multiplication Property of Equality - Exercise Set: 13

x=-$\frac{3}{4}$

#### Work Step by Step

Divide both sides by -8 to isolate the variable. $-8x=6$ $\frac{-8x}{-8}$=$\frac{6}{-8}$ x=-$\frac{6}{8}=-\frac{6\div2}{8\div2}$ x=-$\frac{3}{4}$ Check the answer. -8(-$\frac{3}{4}$)=6 $\frac{8(3)}{4}$=6 $\frac{24}{4}$=6 6=6
