If negative six π₯ equals 24, what is the value of six π₯ minus one?
00:00:10.210 --> 00:00:20.400
The steps here will be to first find what π₯ is equal to, then use that value to plug into the expression six π₯ minus one.
00:00:21.460 --> 00:00:25.310
Negative six π₯ equals 24 is the statement weβre given.
00:00:26.060 --> 00:00:29.320
We need to solve for π₯, get π₯ by itself.
00:00:30.200 --> 00:00:35.180
We can do that by dividing negative six π₯ by negative six.
00:00:35.860 --> 00:00:40.120
Negative six divided by negative six cancels each other are out.
00:00:40.120 --> 00:00:41.460
Theyβre equal to one.
00:00:42.290 --> 00:00:49.650
But if we divide by negative six on the left side of the equation, we need to divide by negative six on the right side.
00:00:50.850 --> 00:00:55.750
24 divide by negative six equals negative four.
00:00:56.590 --> 00:01:00.030
That tells us that π₯ is equal to negative four.
00:01:00.840 --> 00:01:05.120
And we can use that information to solve six π₯ minus one.
00:01:05.900 --> 00:01:08.290
π₯ is equal to negative four.
00:01:08.950 --> 00:01:10.300
So we plug that in.
00:01:10.770 --> 00:01:15.570
Six times negative four minus one is what weβre trying to solve.
00:01:16.250 --> 00:01:20.400
Six π₯ negative four equals negative 24.
00:01:21.090 --> 00:01:26.210
If we subtract one from negative 24, we get negative 25.
00:01:27.490 --> 00:01:31.620
The value of six π₯ minus one is negative 25.
