Evaluate: (x)/(4)=-8

Expression: $\frac{ x }{ 4 }=-8$

Multiply both sides of the equation by $4$

$4 \times \frac{ x }{ 4 }=4 \times \left( -8 \right)$

Cancel out the greatest common factor $4$

$x=4 \times \left( -8 \right)$

Multiplying a positive and a negative equals a negative: $\left( + \right) \times \left( - \right)=\left( - \right)$

$x=-4 \times 8$

Multiply the numbers

$x=-32$
