n/2+10=7

n/2+10-10=7-10

n/2=-3 We think that we should multiply by the two, the denominator, and will end up with -6, is this correct? Please double check me

You're correct!

Your goal is to solve for n. So, by multiplying both sides of the equation by 2 ~

(n/2) x 2 = -3 x 2

it will get n by itself and the answer is

n = -3 x 2 = -6
