Hi darkangel06!

I suspect you meant to solve -1/5x - 2 = 0

It that is the case, then you are supposed to add 2 to each side of the equality.
Then multiply each side by 5.
And finally negate both sides.
This should leave you with just x on the left side and the answer on the right side.

Is that something you can do?

HI darkangle06!

you can try solving this by using the quadratic formula!
