    40n means 40 times n you want to isolate 'n' so you have to undo the multiplication by 40, which means you must divide both sides by 40

    40n/40 = 1n or just n so on the left side, 40n turns into just 'n'

    you must do the same to both sides, so divide -8 by 40 and reduce

    40n = -8 40n/40 = -8/40 1n = -8/40 n = -1/5 This is basically what we did, just all in one place
