    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?
