answer:

x = -2 1/2

step-by-step explanation:

1/4x = -5/8

first divide 1/4 over the equal sign to get rid of x

1/4x = -5/8

/1/4 /1/4

then multiply by the reciprocal by flipping the numerator and denominator on the second fraction

-5/8 • 4/1

multiply

-20/8

simplify

x = -2 1/2

Answer:x=-5/2

Step-by-step explanation:First you need to make 1/4x into x, to do that you multiply 4 on both side.

1/4x*4=-5/8*4

After multiplying 4 on both side you get:

x=-5/2
