    If you mean solving for x then its like this :

    Isolate x in one side of the equation :

    a + b = -x + c

    Subtract c from both sides of the equation so it goes from the right to the left side :

    a + b – c = -x + c – c
    a + b – c = -x

    multiply both sudes by -1 so -x becomes positive

    -(a + b – c) = -(-x)

    negative x negative is positive so :

    – a – b + c = x

    x = – a – b + c

    Hope it helps

    Super simple, just solve for x like normal until you get to -x equals something, than multiply both sides by -1.

    a+b=-x+c
    a+b-c=-x
    -1(a+b-c)=x
    -a-b+c=x
