Answer

z=-$\frac{7}{2}$

Work Step by Step

Divide both sides of the equation by 8 to isolate the variable. -28=8z 8z=-28 $\frac{8z}{8}$=-$\frac{28}{8}$ z=-$\frac{28}{8}=-\frac{28\div4}{8\div4}$ z=-$\frac{7}{2}$ Check the answer. 8(-$\frac{7}{2}$)=-28 -$\frac{8(7)}{2}$=-28 -$\frac{56}{2}$=-28 -28=-28
