 Question 98392This question is from textbook intermediate algebra through applications : I'm stuck on this problem: a-b _____ = -d solve for b c I multiplied both sides by c a-b = -d(c) then i subtracted a from both sides. -b = -d(c) - a The answer my book gives is b = cd + a How do I make the b, d and a positive? HELP!!! -ThanksThis question is from textbook intermediate algebra through applications Found 2 solutions by tutorcecilia, stanbon:Answer by tutorcecilia(2152)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You did a great job! Just multiply the entire equation through by (-1). THis will get rid of all of the negatives, leaving all positive terms. Answer by stanbon(57377)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!-b = -d(c) - a The answer my book gives is b = cd + a How do I make the b, d and a positive? --------------- -b = -cd -a Multiply both sides by -1 to get: b = cd+a ============= Cheers, Stan H.
