I think that is incorrect because 32-9(12) is not equal to 140. Supposed to include the negative sign or minus sign. The answer isn't 12, it's -12, I'm pretty sure.

32-9x=140

140-32=108

Rewrite the problem as:

-9x=108

Don't forget the minus/negative sign that goes with the 9.

Use the inverse operation.

108/-9=-12

x=-12

Check your work:

32-9(-12)=140

-9*12=-108

32+108

140=140- The answer is x=-12.
