The first step in solving the problem is to distribute the 8. We know this because of the system or order of operations as well as the distributive property.  8(2+7c)=-19  16+56c=-19 The next step in solving is to isolate the variable, which we can do by performing the opposite operations of the values  16+56c=-19 -16          -16 56c=-35 /56    /56 c=-35/56 Finally, we should put our equation in simplest form. c=-35/56 c=-5/8=-.625 Using the math above, we can see that the value of the variable is -5/8 or -.625.
