We must eliminate 19 so that x will be left on the right side. 19 is positive so we will ADD the Negative Inverse of 19 both sides. That will give us -19. -17 + (-19) = 19 + x + (-19) -17 - 19 = 19 + x - 19 -36 = x 2) g - 35 = -62 Lets do the same, Add Negative Inverse of -35 both sides. That is 35 g - 35 + 35 = -62 + 35 g = -27 3) -27 + z = 47 Add negative inverse of -27 both sides, that is 27 -27 + z + 27 = 47 + 27 z = 74
