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
