# What is the value of n in the equation –(2n + 4) + 6 = –9 + 4(2n + 1)?

An equation is a mathematical representation which shows the equality between two expressions

## Answer: The value of n in the equation –(2n + 4) + 6 = –9 + 4(2n + 1) is 7/10

Let's solve the equation –(2n + 4) + 6 = –9 + 4(2n + 1)

**Explanation:**

–(2n + 4) + 6 = –9 + 4(2n + 1)

=> -2n - 4 + 6 = -9 + 8n + 4 (By using distributive property)

=> -2n + 2 = 8n - 5

=> -2n - 8n = -5 - 2 (By transposing and combining like terms)

=> -10n = -7

=> n = 7/10
