If a certain negative number is multiplied by six, the result is the same as 20 less than the original number. What is the value of the original number?

hi guest!
 

to solve this we can make an equation: 

\(6x=x-20\)

 

now, we can just simplify!

\(5x=-20\)

\(\boxed{x=-4}\)

 

 

i hope this helped you!
