Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's say we have a number \(n\). Double it to make \(2n\). Divide it by three to make \(\frac23n\). Subtract \(3.1\) to make \(\frac23n3.1\). Finally, divide by \(5\) to make \(3.7\), so\[\frac{\frac23n3.1}{5}=3.7\]Solve for the original number \(n\).
