    Answer:

    x = – 8.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given  : 16 = -2x – 1

    To find : Solve for x.

    Solution : We have given

    16 = -2x – 1

    On adding both sides by 1

    16 + 1 = -2x .

    17 = – 2x

    On dividing both sides by -2.

    x = – 8. 5

    If we rounded it it would be – 8 .

    Therefore, x = – 8.

    I tend to flip so x is on the left, so:

    -2x – 1 = 16

    -2x = 17

    x = -17/2, which is -8.5

    Rounding up, your answer would be x = -8 !
