• This Question is Open
1. ParthKohli

$\rm {8n + 3 - 6n \over 2} = {8n \over 2} + {3\over 2} - {6n \over 2}$

2. whatisthequestion

does the /2 apply to the entire expression or just the 6n?

3. vipul92

16n+6-6n/2

4. ParthKohli

Or is it...$\rm 8n + 3 - {6n \over 2}$

5. ParthKohli

@vipul92 Better to write $$\rm 8n + 3 - 3n$$

6. whatisthequestion

vipul collect like terms to get 10n+6/2 then factor out a two to get in simplest terms 5n+2

7. whatisthequestion

sorry @vipul92 I forgot to tag you there

8. vipul92

k i understand

9. whatisthequestion

if the other way then @ParthKohli still needs to collect like terms to simplify his answer to get n+(3/2)

10. fhsbgtr

the / goes with the whole expression
