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

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

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

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

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

    then simply divide each expression by two to get 4n+(3/2)-3n then collect like terms n + (3/2) you can also switch the steps if you want.
