a = -5
-(5-(a+1)) = 9-(5-(2a-3)) Always do the inner-most parentheses first. When distributing a minus sign to the parenthesis, the signs will be switched. Example: 5-(2a-3) becomes 5-2a+3
-(5-a-1) = 9-(5-2a+3) Now simplify what's in the parentheses on both sides of the equations.
-(4-a) = 9-(8-2a) Distribute negative sign to what's inside the parenthesis.
-4+a = 1+2a Subtract 'a' to the right side and subtract '1' to the left side.
-5 = a
