  1. Answer:

    k= -8

    Explaining:

    Move variable to the left-hand side and change its sign.

    2.25k – 6.5k – 20= 6.5k – 6.5k + 14

    Since two opposites add up to zero, remove them from the expression.

    2.25k – 6.5k – 20= 14

    Collect like terms!

    -4.25k = 14 + 20

    Add the numbers

    -4.25k = 35

    Divide both sides of the equation by -4.25

    So you will get the answer: k= -8
