A number decreased by 32 is -58. Find the number.

Parth (parthkohli):

Let's say that the number is x. A number decreased by 32 could be said as x - 32. Let's equate here :D \(\Large \color{MidnightBlue}{\Rightarrow x - 32 = -58 }\) Add 32 to both sides. \(\Large \color{MidnightBlue}{\Rightarrow x = -26 }\)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

x=-26

OpenStudy (anonymous):

since -58 +32 = -26

OpenStudy (anonymous):

x=-26

OpenStudy (anonymous):

-26

Parth (parthkohli):

Yes
