It is C. Multiply each side by negative one over five , subtract 25 from each side.

Hope this helped you! :3

D;Multiply each side by −5, add 25 to each side

Step-by-step explanation:

-1/5 (x − 25) = 7

To solve this equation, we will first multiply both-side of the equation by -5

-5 × -1/5(x-25) =7 × 5

(At the left-hand side of this equation, the  5 we multiplied will cancel the 5 at the denominator, leaving us with just ‘1’ since negative multiply by negative is positive), Hence our equation becomes;

(x – 25) = 35

x – 25 = 35

Then the next thing to do is to add 25 to both-side of the equation in other to get the value of your x

x -25 + 25 = 35 + 25

x=60

Therefore,  option D is the correct sequence of operation to follow to enable you solve the equation.
