#### Explanation:

We started with

Move the -5 to the other side while changing the sign.

Sum the numerals.

To check that, start with the original problem and plug the -19 in for the d and check to see ... Are both sides still equal?

Yes, they are still equal, -19 must actually be the value of d.
