**Answer:**

The answer is

→

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Given:

**Solve:**

**Step 1:** Multiply all terms by the same value to eliminate fraction denominators.

⇒

**Step 2:** Cancel multiplied terms that are in the denominator.

⇒

**Step 3:** Re-order terms so constants are on the left.

⇒

**Step 4: **Divide both sides by the same factor.

⇒

**Step 5:** Simplify.

- Divide the numbers.

⇒

- Cancel terms that are in both the numerator and denominator.

⇒

- Move the variable to the left.

⇒

Hence, is your answer.

Step by Step:

1) -72/x = 9 first, you multiply both sides by x and get -72= 9 * x

2) -72= 9 * x second, you divide both sides by 9 to isolate x by itself -72/9 = 9 * x/ 9 (the 9 cancels on the right side of the equation leaving x by itself)

Leaving you answer to be x = -8
