    Now lets put it all together: 3q - 15 = 2q + 10

    Do the same as we did on the previous one. Constants to one side, variables on the other

    To do so, lets substract 2q from 3q : 3q - 2q - 15 = 10 1q - 15 = 10 Now solve as a linear equation 1q = 10 + 15 1q = 25 q = 25/1 q = 25

    Hahaha, no no, I indeed have a life other than being on Openstudy. It gradually becomes quite addicting and an everyday routine. Users here are not payed, simply an international community here to help ;)
