Hi Destini,

I'm assuming you want to solve for x here.

The first thing I would do is distribute the -7 to the quantity (2-2x). If you do that, you have:

-14+14x=-98.

Next, you want to move everything with the variable x on one side and put everything else on the other side. Therefore, we want to move the -14 to the side with the -98. To do that, we need to add 14 to both sides, as shown below:

-14+14x+14=-98+14

When we add the 14 to both sides, we are left with:

14x=-84.

Then, we simply need to divide both sides by 14 to get x=-6.

Hope this helps a bit!
