Use the distributive property to multiply 0.5 by 5-7x.
To find the opposite of 4x+6, find the opposite of each term.
Subtract 6 from 8 to get 2.
Add 4x to both sides.
Combine -3.5x and 4x to get 0.5x.
Subtract 2.5 from both sides.
Subtract 2.5 from 2 to get -0.5.
Divide both sides by 0.5.
Divide -0.5 by 0.5 to get -1.
