16⋅-1⋅n+516⋅-1=-16⋅1
Rewrite the expression.
-1⋅n+5-1=-16⋅1
-1⋅n+5-1=-16⋅1
Simplify the expression.
Move the negative one from the denominator of n+5-1.
-1⋅(-1⋅(n+5))=-16⋅1
Rewrite -1⋅(n+5) as -(n+5).
-1⋅(-(n+5))=-16⋅1
-1⋅(-(n+5))=-16⋅1
Apply the distributive property.
-1⋅(-n-1⋅5)=-16⋅1
Multiply -1 by 5.
-1⋅(-n-5)=-16⋅1
Apply the distributive property.
-1(-n)-1⋅-5=-16⋅1
Multiply -1(-n).
Multiply -1 by -1.
1n-1⋅-5=-16⋅1
Multiply n by 1.
n-1⋅-5=-16⋅1
n-1⋅-5=-16⋅1
Multiply -1 by -5.
n+5=-16⋅1
n+5=-16⋅1
Multiply -16 by 1.
n+5=-16
n+5=-16
Move all terms not containing n to the right side of the equation.
Subtract 5 from both sides of the equation.
n=-16-5
Subtract 5 from -16.
n=-21
n=-21
