Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1here is how to do this problem the right way. 1 = 1/3a  5, first we are solving for A so we take the and subtract 1 from both sides that gives =1/3a51 next add the two negative numbers together to get 6 so now we have =1/3a6 next divide by 1/3 so now we have A=6/1/3
