In the following activity, write an equation to represent each verbal statement, and use it to find the value of each unknown number. Then, put the solution values in order from smallest to largest. [Note: The smallest solution is "first", and the largest solution is "fifth".] The sum of a number and two is equal to the quotient of six and negative four. The difference between four times a number and five has a result of negative eight. Half of a number is added to four. This sum is equivalent to negative one. The sum of a number and three is divided by five. The result is negative two. The difference between a number and five is multiplied by negative two. The resulting product equals fourteen. Look how many points this question is worth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
