    To equations are equivalent if and only if they have the same solution set.

    Solve for both of the equations.

    -2x = 10

    x = - 5 < - - Divide both sides by - 2

    -5x = 25

    x = - 5 < - - Divide both sides by - 5

    Both have the solution - 5.

    So, yes both are equivalent.
