    The whole idea is to get 'k' known as the variable by itself.

    Why not first... subtract 6 from both sides? Then, what do you get?

    Now, what we can do to get rid of the fraction... is to multiply by 3 on both sides. What do you get?

    2k = -54 because the 3 basically just canceled out on the left side.
